EARTH DAY DURING THE COVID 19 SHUTDOWN

As part of the Covid 10 shutdown rituals I try to go for a walk, take a few photos exploring my neighborhood.  One of my Facebook friends, Peter Ormond arranges a few giveaways to commemorate Earth Day.  It is popular so I decided to go early and somehow ended up being his first visitor.  We were able to maintain social distancing, but Peter was very helpful in his explanations.  He is putting art in eARTh day.








Peter has set a good example of how to live a green lifestyle--note his Green House.  He has solar panels on his roof and rain barrels in his back yard.  This year he was giving out bird houses, and seed packets of arugula, sunflower (for pollinating), garlic, peas and anise.








Peter lives in a neighborhood that has become one of my favorites for taking photos.  Here are a few.









Living near Hamilton Harbour I have taken some other favorite photos.

This is of metal sculpture done a few years ago by a team, Dam de Nogales.  Veronica is from Barcelona, Spain and Edwin is from Hamilton, Ontario.  They do sculptures on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
