We finally had some sunshine in Northern Alberta!!!! I got the last of my flowers planted. Hopefully we will have some more sunny days soon; although, we had a fantastic thunderstorm last night with load of rain, and it is on the cooler side today.
We recently installed a fence in our front yard so that our two Boston Terriers can enjoy sitting in the sun. This is the view facing west with the new fence, flowers, and the bench I moved from the front porch. We get lovely sun in the morning here so it will be a nice spot to soak up whatever sun we do get.
This picture is of the front of the deck..... my pottery sunflower looks great there! Let's hope the Begonias grow!
I am getting packed for a week long quilt retreat - this is my yearly retreat that I have written about before. Looking forward to seeing my old friends AND taking a landscape class from my very good friend, Shirley Patterson. I am going to be making a winter scene.....
Thought for the Day
