Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Just Peachy

Today was Niagara on the Lake's Peach Festival


our high street was closed to traffic for All Things Peach.

 pies...


pastries...


jams and relish.


A peach pie contest


They were tasting pie number 7 of 17 when I was there!


Serious comments...



Beautiful singers...



and a sexy choir mistress.


Santa in August?



locally grown corn on the cob




cooking in two antique steam engines


delicious!


Happy to say the EMTs had absolutely nothing to do.


Merchants had their wares for sale




and all in celebration of this glorious fruit
