Spring in the Alberta Foothills

Last week we had snow, rain and sun. Temperatures in the high 20’s and low teens and frost on the weekend. The perennials are up in the garden – never ceases to amaze me that they will survive through our winter. But I won’t be getting any annuals until the end of June. We can still get frost in June and into July and even the end of August! So – why do I love living here….don’t have to go far for endless inspiration (out the front door), can walk the dog without a leash, have a meadow full of wildflowers, the deer and moose are showing up with their new babes, our horse and mules are just at the bottom of the drive and when the sun shines and the temperatures are in the 20’s is my kind of paradise. So while I wait for some blooms outdoors painted some indoors. Wherever you are may you be enjoying ‘your’ paradise!
