Montreal, Canada


So this post is only about three years late.  I took a trip to Canada for a friend’s daughter’s wedding about 3 years ago and was going through some photos and realized  that I never blogged or posted much about that trip.

My life was a bit sad and crazy at the time, my blogging took a major nose dive and I kept telling myself to save the pictures I had taken and write about it later.    So, here I am, three years later reminiscing about an amazing trip to Canada and sharing some of the photos I took.

Cobblestone streets, strolling, shopping, eating, and drinking.  And grabbing photos when I can.  That’s how I like to travel.

Window boxes and flowers were everywhere.  My favorite window box flowers are those tiny purple-blue flowers called Lobelia.  I have the hardest time growing it here in North Carolina.  And believe me I have tried.   I suspect it gets a bit too hot for it to thrive here.    The cooler temperatures in Canada must be what it likes because it was everywhere I went.

Window boxes anywhere and everywhere.

Yep, I think I could live here and be very happy.

Just hearing people speak French made me very happy.    And little signs of French-ness everywhere I looked like the French lace door panels .

I think flowers, windows and doors are some of my favorite things to photograph.  Something about flowers in a city setting I think really grab my attention.  There was no shortage of things to photograh in Montreal but OH! when I got to  Quebec City I nearly lost my mind.  : )  Stayed tuned.
