Starting today is Truth and Reconciliation Week here in Canada, when we pause to reflect on the history of residential schools and the impact they had on indigenous communities. The week culminates in Orange Shirt Day on Friday, where we specifically remember the children lost at residential schools.

The Seven Grandfather Teachings
Friday, September 23, 2022
I must admit that I'm fascinated with taking close-ups of some flowers in the garden. I don't always understand which are the stamens and pistils, but I just think it's a close look at an amazing world. When I think that these feed the pollinators while getting pollinated in return, it's really an incredible two-way relationship that's evolved.
I'm not going to add comments, just leave these for you to enjoy. These make me pleased with my new camera too!

Our Garden is Still Going Strong!
Remarkably enough for this time of September, our garden is still very colourful and full of interesting flowers in bloom. The Zinnias are the backbone of it, but a lot of other flowers are contributing. I especially love the Fall Anemones, the first photo below, a flower we had at our last house.

I had fun photographing the scarecrows, and it was a perfect day for it, blue skies and sunny. After I got finished working my way down the block (I only got pictures of one short downtown block of scarecrows, but there are equal numbers elsewhere) I started looking at details. Among other things I was struck by the hairstyles!

The Scarecrow Invasion is On!
Here in Meaford the annual Scarecrow Invasion is on, after a two year hiatus because of Covid. Several hundred volunteers make up several hundred scarecrows that are placed at strategic locations around town. It all culminates in a parade on Sept. 30th, but there's lots to see in the meantime. This year is the 25th Anniversary.
