I have not been writing for a while because the weather has been wonderful here. When it is sunny and warm, I have the urge to spend as much time as possible outside. There are a lot of things happening in Edmonton in the summer so we are taking the advantage of nice weather and events whenever possible. Of course there are regular life things going on and I let them take over for a bit. However, I am ready to get back to serious work and continue painting and creating.
I love the University of Alberta Botanic Garden and the new Aga Khan garden. We already went two time this season to visit - on the opening day and last night for the date night (for us that means bring the whole family!) . My son and I got to take a workshop with Taiko drummers http://boomingtree.ca/ and it was so much fun! It is a good workout too to play those drums! I love how they open the garden for special events in the evening - the light was perfect and there were hardly any people there.
