This photo was taken in Clare Park, a gem of a park in central Ottawa (Ontario, Canada). One of my dear friends recently organized a time for neighbours to come together to decorate one of the trees in the park. She calls it the Charlie Brown tree. I captured a few photos of it yesterday and it is just delightful.
In the spring and summer you can often find my friend in the park planting hostas and shrubs and other plants that have been donated to beautify the park. Her love and energy have helped to make it into a lush oasis and place for fun and repose. With infectious enthusiasm, she has rallied many to make a huge difference to the neighbourhood.
