Tantalizing Reflections


Windows are like mirrors to the beauty of the great outdoors...
Depending on the time of day, the season or the angle of light, reflections dance across an outside windowpane...



Be it vintage textiles airing on the line amidst a cloudy day...


Or a country field captured by the village church window...


The ability of the wavy glass to refract the vision before it is amazing...


August is upon us... enjoy the dog days of Summer!

So far summer has not been hot here by the ponds, and the promise for August is for more of the same. Your views, reflected and refracted are so very lovely. There is really no place as beautiful as southern Ontario at the height of summer.

Oh Susan what a lovely pic of the vintage textiles airing on the line...I love those lines !!! Your hot August makes me think of Neil Diamond and his Hot August Night...we are ever so slowly starting to warm up and have more sunny days as Spring is just around the corner...looking forward to hitting that beach!!! Thanks so much for calling by...Dzintra

After a very warm and dry spring we've had such a disappointing summer ... but the forecast is for some hot weather during August - so those dog days could become a reality.

I love the vintage textiles blowing on the line. Beautiful images.

Have a wonderful warm and sunny weekend Susan.

Summer has been very hit and miss here in the UK, but today it has been glorious. Thanks for sharing another wonderful batch of photos. Give Miss Maddie a stroke and lick from us please :-) Ros and Oscar

Miss Maddie looks quite cool despite the heat.
Loved all the pictures. My heart went straight to the vintage fabrics airing out. They are just lovely.
The heat has been hard to take here too.

I came to your blog from Pondside. I have a thing for windows too. I posted once with lots of photos from our open air museum. Windows and doors have something fascinating about them.
