I returned Saturday night from 10 days in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada. I had three days vacation before my week of teaching began. While teaching at Cherry Tree Quilts in Summerland, BC, I stayed with Barb Gillespie (the owner). Check out the view of vineyards and Okanagan Lake from the deck of her home! A little like Italy, no?
I spotted lots of quails, and this Quail Crossing (my last name is pronounced quail!).
Quails move fast, and this was about as close as I could get.
I had a lovely visit to the Lavender Farm just outside Kelowna.
I enjoyed viewing and walking among orchards with trees hung heavy with peaches, apples and pears.
I was inspired by a great group of students. Many more posts to come.
