TodayPoinsettia comes into bloom OUTSIDE in St. Catharines ONMikeSt. Catharines, ONToday97Plant was under the overhang at home and left out for all but three coldest nights. The short days allowed it to bloom. This is the first poinsettia I have ever had re-bloom because artificial light can interfere with the short day cycle needed to allow them to bloom. What is unusual here... the fact that it was out every day this fall and only brought in three nights. (in retrospect with the plant under the overhang it would likely been OK but did not want to chance it. Great fall! Geraniums still looking good too.3671104-737

December 3, 2016Big Boy on the Niagara RiverJohnYoungFort Erie, ONDecember 2, 2016340While on her way to work, my other half spotted this guy in a tree at Cozy Dell on the Niagara River; knowing I am an avid birder she called and told me to get my pajamaed ass down there to see him. I actually pulled on my Levis and with Nikon in hand set out to capture the prize. As I pulled up to Cozy Dell I spotted the big boy and approached slowly in my car. I realized I could not get out without spooking him so I inched my way up under the tree he was perched in and opened the sunroof. All the while he was eyeballing me and I knew I'd have fleeting chances of capturing him. I shot probably 20 frames and got this gem. It was only moments before he spread his 6' wings and glided out over the river. What a morning!-219806-1025
