We had a lovely day out, yesterday, doing a loop along the St. Charles river. You can, if you really wanted to (and had the time) walk all the way from the Lac St. Charles along the river till you arrive here, in Québec City, and hit the mighty St. Lawrence river. We chose to …

Following on from Darwin and Miro, we went to the Chateau Frontenac for Afternoon Tea yesterday! And let me tell you, if you’ve never done afternoon tea at a fancy hotel, you should. It was a blast from beginning to end. An extravaganza for the taste buds. The Chateau recently celebrated it’s 125 anniversary and …

In order to recover from being inside for almost the entire weekend, last weekend, this Wednesday we spent the day outside at the University Laval Botanic Gardens soaking up some sun. As usual, the array of flowers didn’t disappoint, especially the peonies—my favourite flowers. We were spoilt for choice. I hope everyone has a great …

Just because I can, and because the snow is feet deep out there, I decided to share a little colour with you from this past summer: one of my floral portraits.

Sometimes, when words fail you, or you are simply too busy to write a post, it’s better to go with something that speaks a fabled 1000 words … and what better way than with a picture of flowers! So here, in lieu of a post about writing, or books, or authors, or anything bookish (as …
