Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

Mount Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia.  (Overlander Falls I think.)   These falls were a short hike in from the parking lot.  A group of kayakers arrived at the top of the falls.  We waited to see what they would do next.  I snapped some photos of close calls with the rapids.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

I had a busy day today, despite traveling for about 4 1/2 hours I managed to get some major chores done.  When I got home with my grandson we were doing some work in the yard and found these busy ants.  I’m not sure if they were carrying things into the tree or into the ground on the stick roadway that they created.  There was a steady stream of ants going up and down the stick.

I noticed these beauties last week but didn’t have a chance to take a photo.  Today’s challenge seemed a perfect opportunity.

We discovered koi or goldfish during the winter when we scraped off the pond to go skating.  Now the bull rushes are growing very fast and the fish will not be visible much longer.

This time of year I spend a lot of time outdoors.  At our new house I am working hard to establish a vegetable garden and flower beds.  The vegetable garden is very small this year because the soil is so poor.  The tomato plants were planted in what will be flower beds in the future.  Hopefully there will be enough sun for them.
