WOW, Ken! I was over at Meeyaw's Pad when I saw the name Stouffville in her list! We used to live there in the 60's when my husband and I were in Toronto Bible College, now Tyndale University and Seminary. I can't tell you how many people we know, or used to know in that area -- many have passed on since our days there. My husband was part-time pastor at the Ringwood Christian church. Steckley's was one of the names. There were four sisters, now grandchildren there I imagine. Vague is another name. Francis is still alive and one of her sons is down here in San Diego ministering with us. What a small world!
Love your Japanese Maples. I saw a lot of them when we were in England.

So, Ken, do you do it on purpose, or is it a sub-conscious thing?
Do you see how the colours roll on through the days?
I started to notice with the turquoisey blue and orange, which then went to green and grey, then grey with bits of orange which turned to grey with red.
But you're a stained glass artist, right?
So, I reckon it must be a conscious thing - or then again, maybe that would lend itself to an unconscious thing - hmmmm....
Where are we headed next?
I'm tipping purpley and .....
