Unnaturally GREEN !

A few days ago I did catch some colour in the sky .. I practically had to wring it out with my hands but finally it smiled at me.

Then the comedy team of anonymous crows had a "sit-off" routine they were practicing ?

Then looking at my garden and its unnatural GREEN .. made me wonder what would be the punishment for being this way ... this LONG ?
My little hedge of Provence lavender babied until replanting next year .. if they make it through what ever type of winter that will be smacking us in the face .. soon ?
See ? totally unnatural to have this happening here in the Great White North ..
Frosted Violet heuchera along with Moonshine pulmonaria .. are basking ? in the non-snow environment ??
Now for some blue ... in a collection of shades ...
My first converted plant picture to a plaque technique .. and we are impressed : )

Last .. the smudgy clouds that got together for a coffee and chat yesterday morning .. and yes, clouds do gossip .. I heard them ! wink wink

Love the sky photos. And your picture of a picture is wonderful. I have a lot of printed photos displayed on the walls.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Thanks Linda : ) I am just expanding my "touch" with some of my photos .. Husband really likes seeing them too and that is nice .. you need an admirer ?? LOL

Lona said...

Hi Joy. I am so glad you made a picture from that leaf photo. It is such a beautiful picture. It looks wonderful on your wall. We got a whole inch of snow yesterday. Your turn. LOL!

Diana Studer said...

Ooh when did you change everything? I have been skimming posts in Google Reader. There were nearly 600 of them ... I love both your new look, and your new name!!!

Cat said...

Hello, I noticed your header right away and was captivated by it. It made me smile when I read further and saw that you now have a picture of it in your home! Great choice! Your photos are beautiful - very enjoyable.

Lona girl my husband was totally captivated by it and he was the one who actually insisted on getting it done like this .. mind you I am very glad we did , it came out beautifully!
YES ! .. we are in the middle of our snowfall now and it is forecasted for a few days to come .. might get white here after all ? haha

Diane .. Thank you so much girl !
I have been falling behind in reading blogs as you can guess .. it has been a while since I have gotten to yours and I am still trying to gather up the blogs I lost when I changed things here .. I have to pop over to yours !

Hello there Whimsical Gardener .. That is such a nice name ! Thank you very much : ) I have to visit blogs tomorrow and I will have a wee gander at yours too : )

What a great wall picture your leaf photo has made. So Canadian, eh!

Very nice, my dear Joy!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Ms S thank you so much ! It does make the room feel VERY Canadian EH !
I am so happy it turned out so well .. I wasn't sure with the pixel count being high enough .. but now I know and I am very impressed with my camera even though it is a little old? LOL

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Love your colors, but you certainly need some white! very nice images of the birds, and that last leaf is great!

You always have the most gorgeous sunrise photos Joy. I never see colors like that here. That leaf shot is a beauty, don't blame you for framing it up. :)

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hello Tatyana and thank you very much! .. we now have our official first light snow fall so things are looking more "normal" ? haha
Much more to come I'm sure !

Thanks Racquel girl : ) I am so fortunate to have that bit of sky to capture the sunrises .. and if it had not been for such enthusiasm of husband I might not have gotten to the stage of printing out that leaf .. I am so glad we did now .. and I am eying a lot of other pictures ? haha

Jan said...

I love your photo Joy! You did a beautiful job converting it to a plaque!! It's the perfect Canadian symbol:-) All of your sky photos are stunning. It's getting cold here snow, though. I think we might get some mid-month (that's next week--ack!). I hope you will have a wonderful holiday season and are feeling well these days;-)

tina said...

Your garden is so pretty. That pulmonaria with the coral bells wonderful! So glad it is staying green for so long. Wouldn't it be nice to have a green Christmas? When all of us in the south wish for a white one?

Darla said...

I'm guessing you are usually white this time of the year...I know squat about snow just love seeing photos of it. Your garden could easily be here the way it looks. You know, I have some buds on my lavender right now...

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hello Jan girl : ) and thank you very much ! We do have a light dusting of the white stuff for now .. much more to come I am sure, because we are Canadians eh ! haha
Hope you are well and looking forward to a great family holiday!

Tina girl I have lived through a few green Christmases .. here in Canada and in Holland .. and it is kind of weird ? I need a little white just for a few days then it can go back to green .. and I hope you get a little touch of it too ... we can share ! ;-)

Darla .. I am coming over right now to .... about those buds on the lavender !! and if you aren't careful I might just send some icy snow your way girl ! hehehehe

Hi Joy,
I love your new blog look and name. Is the background one of your photos? You said you were going to try it, so I didn't know if you did already. I sure like it, and it goes well with all your lovely sky photos.

It's good you got photos of the heucheras and such before they get covered with snow. I got some shots of mine looking like that a few days ago.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am behind in my blog reading, too.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Thank you so much Sue : )
No, the background is one from Blogger template still .. I need a little more time to play with things on the template .. takes me a while to get the hang of it but I am determined ? wink wink
This was one long green season before the snow came and we don't have a lot of snow .. I'm sure that will come to though .. as will cabin fever ? LOL
Yup ! I am still trying to gather blogs for my blog roll too : )
