How did you like Toronto , my husband works there I try to stay as far as possible away from there .Except for quilt shows . Did you get to any quilt stores there ?
Good luck with your eye surgery , I keep thinking about having it done but in the end I'm a big chicken .

Hope you have/had fun at your quilt retreat Lise, and that you didn't forget your camera!!! 8-)

The "bush" is a Cistena Cherry, it needs to be pruned down to about 10-12 inches, just after a bud, in early spring. We used to have one on each side of our front door at the other house.

You don't like Bishops Goutweed?! I love it! We grew it, on purpose, on the east side of our other house... Pain in the put if it has all kinds of weeks growing through it though... lol!
