Flower Power

Everytime we go to a greenhouse to get a “specific plant” it’s never just one plant! I never had a green thumb – for years I killed indoor plants by either forgetting to water and then watering too much hoping that I’d redeem myself of the mistake. The following is our new haul of flowers – let’s hope I can keep them flowering by end of the season 🙂

Mountain Adventures & Summer Update

Well, hello there! Hope you are enjoying this much warmer Spring in the praries. I’m popping in here to share our adventures in the past month and a half. We had pretty amazing two weeks of summer in India (where temperatures hovered anywhere from pleasant 17C to hot 37C) My parents had organized a get together to welcome Mr. Swytch into the family. I met a cousin whom i hadn’t seen for 20 years! And the best part, the garden was blooming with Dahlia’s! They are my favorite flower to photograph. We also went to the mountains for 2 day trip to Jasper mid-May and boy it was amazing! The majestic mountains always take my breath away!

Here are a few (or many) pictures so show you what I mean 🙂

Plans ahead:

Mr. Swytch’s parents will be joining us this Friday for their 4-month stay with us and we plan to go to Banff at some point. Elk island and hikes along the river valley are also something that I want to do more of this summer. I haven’t gone back to workouts fully yet! It has been over a month since the surgery so far I’ve added long walks and biking but i really want to go back to HIIT workout.

Hope you have some amazing plans lined up for summer. I mention this because we Canadians hibernate in the long winter so this is perfect time to stretch some legs and explore 🙂

XoXo
