One of the many sunflowers that have bloomed...
A thoughtful reader sent me some seeds in memory of my mom.
I sprinkled the seed packet on a walk last spring

These books are waiting to be read...

A cheery yellow rose in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
If I had to choose just one colour that I associated with cheer, positivity and joy

Hands down it is my favourite colour for a rain slicker or boots...

The winner of the coveted Scotiabank Giller Prize was recently announced
it went to a talented writer who lives here in Victoria!
She won in 2011 for her book Half Blood Blues.
You can read more here.
This book is now on my must read list and I have not read her previous book either so I will look forward to both of those novels.
One of the many perks of retirement
is being able to make and take time to read.
Hope you are having a great week.
