Back from Canada now.  Here are a few treasures from my trip.

Flora:  This beautiful water lily/lotus in Mill Lake Park.  (Several years ago I had photos of this lake frozen with ducks skating on it.)

Chickens:  I saw this feeding set up at a petting zoo, and wanted to show it to Austin.

And now, on my return ….

Flora:   A mystery weed.

(The kids are there to give perspective to the size of the weed plant.)

More Flora:   I was told this is a “Raksha Bandhan” flower

I guess it must bloom this time of year.  Raksha Bandhan – the brother/sister celebration – takes place each year in August.   (Some excitement coming on that front; stay posted!)

And Food:  Akka has started with chili condiment production.  Woo hoo.

That’s it for the weary traveler returning home.   Happy week, everybody!
