After the market

Barbara Muir © 2012Hi there. Well it was quite the month. My dear son
Christopher got married last weekend to his sweetheart
Megan. It was a gloriously beautiful wedding in a country
setting, and the pictures aren't in yet. As the mother of the
groom I didn't have much time to take pictures, so we will
have to wait. The very happy couple are on a three week
honeymoon now, so wait we will.
Meanwhile I am still recovering -- great days, and very tired
days from a cold that became pneumonia, but I do see the
light. Most days I feel my old energy returning, so I hope I'll
be blogging more because I am certainly working.
Today we went to the market and I did this watercolour and
pen sketch of the table loaded with peaches from the market and
jugs of Nasturtiums from the garden. Already frost is threatened
and Torontonians used to a summer of high heat are affronted by
nature proceeding towards fall. The garden is at a high of lush
abundance, and it is hard to think of it all turning to mush one
Have a gathering-in-your-harvest day.
