Thanksgiving in Toronto Part 1 - The Drive

We leave Wednesday afternoon in a snowstorm. The weather for the drive is deja vu all over again from last year.

Our goal is to reach Mount Morris, NY.

Waze takes us off the hwy to avoid traffic. Maybe not such a good idea.

We arrive. 307 miles in about 7 hours. That's an average of about 44 mph.

Dracena Fragrens on Steroids

We had a spectacular bloom on our corn plants this fall.

Now much as I usually love it when my indoor plants are blooming, the fragrance of the corn plant flower is somewhat intense. And by somewhat intense I mean necessary to evacuate the house. These flowers are probably used for chemical warfare somewhere.

There is a reason the scientific name of the corn plant is Dracena Fragrens.


So much as I hated doing it, I had to cut off the flowers. And these were just from the plants upstairs.
After taking this picture, I put them outside the house. It was either that or sleep in gas masks.

Walking Tour of New Brunswick

We took a walking tour of New Brunswick in September

Looking at my photos, I think doorways were the highlight of the tour for me.
