Lundbreck Falls

We were back in Alberta visiting family for the past week....on the way home we stopped at Lundbreck Falls.
 They are a short drive off the highway...
 They are not that large....
But still amazing.... Glad we took the time to check them out! A great stop for a picnic!!

Model T Fords

Living so close to the USA border...
We often head south....for a day or so....
Last week we headed down to spend a couple days ... we love biking the trails here.
 It just so happened the Model T Ford Club of America was meeting  that day...



I was able to snatch a few pictures as they went by.... it was cool to see a parade of all these cars!!

What's that saying?....

'Don't let the grass grow under your feet'??
 What about..."Don't let the moss grow on your roof?"
 Hubby was waiting at a stop sign....out my window was this house...
Got a view of the front too as we turned!!

Good Fences

 Visiting a village in the valley....it wasn't the fence that really caught my eye...
 There is something about the building that attracted me...
The view from the other side...has another fence and cute little gate!

Garlic Festival

Garlic is something we would like to grow in our garden....so I thought this would be a great place to go!
People lined up an hour before it started....this was only one line up.... when we left 3 hours later...there was still a line up!! Around five thousand people attend!
 There was garlic...
and more garlic... around 170 vendors....not all selling garlic:)
I cam home with 6 varieties of garlic and some garlic syrup....
as well as a garlic grater...
homemade soap
 and a nifty bowl cover!!

Weekend plans....

ENDED..... when a neighbour brought us 30 plus pounds of plums...
  I froze some


Canned some
Dried some...plum leather...The leather is a yummy snack...
Half plums can be reconstituted...or used in baking and cookie when fresh plums are not available!!
(I still have a good half bag of fresh ones left!!)
