Bringing back the cheer

Cottage Flowers

I'm pretty sure these flowers are from Sunrise Greenhouses in Pugwash, Nova Scotia.  I know that the vase was from a lovely lady who lived down the road from our school house in Nova Scotia, and that my dear friend Paula frequently puts flowers out to greet us when we arrive after our 2,000 kilometre drive, which always makes me feel happy.

It has been a super busy day.  I am tired and it's Friday night.  I started a big painting today that I'm quite excited about, so more to come on that. Right now it's TV
time, and our cats are wailing for their night time snack.  When I get downstairs the dog will be whining, and she will sit and wait until I say take it for her tiny snack.
I can't wait to show you what I'm working on.  But meanwhile enjoy these flowers as much as I did, and still do seeing the painting.

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you so much. The kindness of our friends both here and in Nova Scotia is touching. It is always amazing to
open the door of the school house and to see flowers.

Love your work.
