Simply Perfect

I took this photo at The Muttart Conservatory,
there are 4 glass pyramids,
and each building has a different theme,
They have renovated now, and soon I will go for another visit.
It is so peaceful and the aromas are wonderful,
There is a waterfall, and a running river,
There are unique birds living amongst the trees.
The sun shines through the glass panes,
The warmth feels incredible..
Often you can see artists sitting and sketching,
It has been a great place for wedding photos,
and for school tours! 
As I sit thinking of it, I am reminded....
walked down the long corridors,
I needed my cane,
but I could take my time,
I was in no rush,
My sister was with me at my side.
we entered the pyramid
and the most beautiful flowers
were on display.
I smiled, my sister looking at me smiled,
I knew she knew I was happy,
WE sat on one of the benches
and I told her this was my idea of heaven,
We sat, talked when necessary,
talked too with unspoken words.
I took some pictures,
She patiently waiting, wanting me to enjoy!
We made it through all the pyramids that day.
Next time I shall take my sketch book.
I will make a point of doing it soon!
I am grateful for such a place.


  1. Gratitude just comes out from you, Cinner.
    All the beauty and peace you see around you is really inside of you.
    You simply see it being reflected back to your loving and kind eyes!

    Thankyou Christina, it really was beautiful. I loved seening your workspace today, one of our angels. I know this for sure.

    Gayle, it really was, I have to go again soon.

    Penquin, hopefully soon, It was a nice memory was it not. I will call you later.

    Cora, she really is the best, often we tell each other we just want to sit on the couch and hold hands, or when we talk on the phone, hours could go by! She is five years younger than me, she is a sweetheart, actually I am very lucky with my older one too. Hope you had a good weekend, I will be by soon.

    Claire, mo worries, whenever, no pressure, there is never enough time and for some reason as we get older, I am speaking for me the time seems to go faster.....I Hope it picks up the pace to get to

    Bernie, I can understand going there. I have not seen the Devonian Gardens out of town, maybe this summer, have you been there. i hope you have a great and happy day.

    TechnoBabe, my favorite would be The Bouchard Gardens out on Vancouver Island. Really so many treasures. There are so many places I want to visit in the States one day, and I have never gone to Eastern Canada....Maybe one day. Have a great day.
