Rhubarb and canola sunrises

Here in the new acreage I am greeted by 

the most beautiful canola sunrises.

You know...canola.

The oil you use for cooking?

Well...it is farmed around here in these parts of 

Alberta and it is in full bloom right now 

and everywhere you look there is almost a 

florescent yellow glow to the fields.

This morning while I was out for a walk I finally 

looked into this little shed....

and to my surprise it is actually an outhouse...

a TWO SEATER outhouse!! lol

Believe it or not there is even wall paper in there...

but it was too dark to get a good photo.

I also love the big old twisty trees that grow 

right in front of the house. 

The previous owners said they are over 100 years old.

....and did I mention we have more rhubarb 

than I know what to do with??

Seriously there about 20 of them planted all over

 the place and while I like rhubarb I am not sure what 

I can do with all of it!! Any ideas?? lol

The heat is setting in all hot and muggy this afternoon 

and it is making me really sleepy.

There are also severe thunderstorm 

warnings posted for tonight 

so it should be a good night to watch the 

lightning from the front porch.

Have a good weekend!


  1. How abSoulutly breathtaking...and that is the largest outhouse I've ever seen! Lezlee

  2. hahaha...that's because it has two seats in it...side by side!! Can you imagine doing your business with someone sitting RIGHT next to you?? lol

  3. Wow, this is absolutely breathtaking.
