Backyard Flowers

This spring has be cool and wet, and not that it's summer, it's still cool and wet -- soon to be hot and wet.  Some fields in the area are under water still, and my photography efforts have been curtailed to a large extent.  However, the flowers in my yard are doing very nicely, and so here are a couple of geranium photos that I took last week.

Tall Ship Festival

Last weekend I went to Brockville, Ont. to see the Tall Ships Festival, with a tribute to the War of 1812.  Brockville was named after Major-General Isaac Brock, a hero of the War of 1812.  The town was invaded  by US soldiers in February 1813, so the town has a strong connection to that war.

Here are some photos from the festival.
