A Fishy Tale

I was recently asked to be interviewed online by a tropical fish enthusiast acquaintance of mine, for his Facebook aquarium group. He was doing a collection of group member profiles. I have been in the fish hobby and business since I was 11 or 12 years old, and was happy to participate. I thought I’dContinue reading “A Fishy Tale”

Hamish’s Journey

When I found out I had breast cancer, it was a scary experience. A few years later, when I was told it had returned, was even scarier. But I’m lucky enough to have a great group of friends and family who were there for me, offering support, well wishes and a shoulder to cry on.Continue reading “Hamish’s Journey”

My Aurora

Five years ago, my sweet girl Aurora passed. She came to me at the boarding kennel I owned in 2001, as a rescue foster dog.

Happy Canada Day!

I consider myself very lucky. Whereas I am and always will be a proud Scot, I am also proud to have lived much of my life in Canada. Canada certainly has a lot to offer!

Flowers For Hummingbirds

A few days ago, I wrote a piece about butterflies. Today I’d like to feature my other jeweled favourite, hummingbirds. I always feel privileged when these little beauties pay me a visit. Here in Southern Ontario, we usually only have one variety of hummingbird visit us, and that is the Rubythroat, although I have heardContinue reading “Flowers For Hummingbirds”
