Rain rain go away..



It looks like we've hit the rainy season here in Toronto. It has rained a lot and will continue to. If the weather was warmer it would be perfect for planting. My newest painting has Frida planting some sunflowers. I actually LOVE LOVE LOVE sunflower sprouts, to eat! YUMMY! They are bigger than most sprouts and have a nutty taste. (By nutty, I mean taste like sunflower seeds, not nutty as in crazy! LOL!)

The rain has been so strong lately that I got myself a pair of these boots:

They are neon yellow! They are like little cartoon boots and that is what I like about them. I feel like a kid in them, and want to jump in puddles! They will certainly make going to the post office in the rain more enjoyable.

"Frida plants seeds" is up for auction on ebay.

Stay dry!
