A New Start

Well it seems like I have dallied long enough. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to make a new start, including the banner. As you can see I have reverted back to my other banner which depicts where we now live, and along with that a few pictures to share.

This park which is adjacent to Fairy lake, is right across the street from where we now live. We now have a place to go for walks and beautiful scenery right on the doorstep, what more could one ask. (clickable thumbnails)



A nice variation on tree colors on our street.



A shot of Fairy lake.



A very nice memorial park setting.



A similar memorial setting.



Now where would we be without some Canada geese!

Hi janice, it is really lovely and so close to everything which is always convenient. Elizabeth is really content with the move. :)

It is great Leon, we even get the little kids soccer teams playing here twice a week which is fun.

I too prefer the green over the white of snow my friend. :)

Didja know that some Canada geese no longer migrate? We have some permanent resident Canada geese here in Maryland. My husband says they look up in the sky longingly when the migrating geese fly by, high-high-high in the sky, but then say, "Forget about it."

Eric Valentine said...

Hi Forsythia, yes I don't doubt it, we have some here as well as ducks that seem to stick around.

People feed them and near us there is a water outlet runs year round at one end of the lake so they stay.. Nice to see and hear, I had some pics here somewhere of the ducks.. :)
