CFN – Summer is in full bloom and I cannot think of better way to share the splendor and beauty that surrounds us each and every day than through images captured in my backyard this morning. I just wish I could attach a file which would allow me to share the sweet smell of the milkweed blooms, the wind that carresses the grasses and body in the open field and the aromatic aroma of the Bee Balm plant whether in bloom or not.
The Nan-King Cherry bush is full of ripe berries which we could eat however we planted these for our feathered visitors. The Robins and Crackles are very happy to dine here.
There are always a variety of crawling and winged bugs and insects visiting. They are a curious lot of species which serve us by aerating our soils, pollinating our plants, keeping other species in check and serve as nutrition and fuel for other living organisms. As many of you may already know I have a great reverence for all life. This value presented the opportunity to collaborate with Eastern Ontario Regional Artist Erica Taylor on the upcoming Exhibition “Branches”. Inspired by a shared sense of connection to nature and concern about fading biodiversity we created an exhibition of mixed media artwork exploring the elemental strength and beauty of our natural landscapes and their multi-faceted importance to life.
