Inside the sheshed
These are pics my cousin Louise sent me..her mom is Claire..the bows the bows the bows♥♥♥
The sailor tops;)
They lost Marie~Louise This is at my grandparents 25th Anniversary.
I know this is only of interest to me:)
But my blog disappeared w/ old pics..:(
We all know that story.
Elise was an angel..she cared for my grandmother who paralyzed.
She never married but took in a foster child for all his life.
I never knew this but Elise and Claire went to l" Ecole Des Beaux Arts here in Mtl..
And Louise and I surmised..and a memory came back to me...Elise and Claire must have met my mom at l'Ecole Des Beaux Arts because she was a student there..and introduced their brother William to her.
The rest is history.
Great ~Grandfather..Grandfather..(I never knew either) and the 3 brothers..the 3 sisters were not in these pics..
Again..just because it was so nice to catch up w/ her and help fill in some spaces.. in her tree..
Thankfully I had a garlic harvest again this nasty Covid Year.
I thought Trump said it was just going to go away.
My first political statement ever.
Wow..with the no nursery shopping per say..and the drought and all our wasps nests..it's a summer of discontent.
Burnt grass and weeping plants are not an artist's canavs in the gardens..
You know..the season we look forward to in Jan..Feb..March when you live in QC.
I had MAX ♥help me♥
I will never harvest my own garlic again.
The pleasure of his company you see:)
I know..far far far worse things..than not great summers..
One only has to look in our own families to find worse.
A cousin of mine..who I have not spoken to in 20 yrs..the last family funeral I attended..called..I loved it.
She is doing a genealogy search of her mom..my dad's sister..Claire above and William my dad.
She sent me pics I didn't have..
These are two of them..the first two..
I am certain this is by the water at their home.
We talked about how how into some lives..some rain must fall.
She sent me newspaper clippings of my sister's tragic passing (I was not born)..
Pictures of my grandparents..I don't think I had ever seen my paternal grandmother before..
Anyway..a lovely experience.
I love growing garlic and now I love lettuce.
One day I guess I won't have a potager and perennial beds..
Life..is very ..well..very..uncertain.
When you are young..or unmarked ..things appear so different.
Let's end this on a creative note.
If you have Youtube..I encourage you to follow Chris Petri's tutorials..They are some of my very favorite..he is nice..giving..talented..generous with his knowledge..and I am usually ok with my outcomes..
Like I don't tear them up..which I do a lot:)
These are 4x4..my choice of size to fit into the only frames I have left..
Pre-Covid I should have stocked up on frames.
Even the $ stores here have great ones w/ mat ..4x6..5x7 etc..
Will I ever enter a store again?
That was miss miserable writing lol.;)
Take care..stay safe..
and why on earth did they open BARS before I could get into stores..
Bars.. drink at home:)
Help the world.
Wear a mask.
Numbers are soaring in certain parts of the world.
Wow..pretty vocal I am.
