Boiling hot tomorrow!!!!!!!!

I was painting at Lasdon today….and it was brutal!  I managed to start a painting on one of the lovely old apple trees and look forward to returning and continuing it soon.

Tomorrow is suppose to be even hotter than today, which is hard to imagine.  I’ve decided to cancel class because of the heat and promise of thunderstorms.

We will meet next Wednesday at Kitchawan and then return to Vickie’s gardens the following week.

Stay cool, enjoy some sweet tea and shade:)


Apple tree in progress:)


No class today :O(

The ground is soaking wet from the rains last night, this morning and with more rain on the way…so no class today.  We will try to meet again on Friday but the weather pattern is very unstable so we will have to wait and see.  I will email again on Friday morning if class is on…fingers crossed :O)

Stay dry 🌧☔️🌧

Stormy day tomorrow?

Everyone who is planning on coming to the farm tomorrow please check your email in the morning to see if we are on for the day or need to reschedule for Friday.  It looks like it may be a stormy day….but things could always change.  I’ll post an email at 8am to let everyone know if we are going to meet at the farm or not :O)

Fingers crossed that the weather is in our favor:)


The foundation is almost finished :O)

The conservatory work is marching on at Lasdon Arboretum.  The foundation is in it’s final stages and the construction it’s on track for being up and running  in the late Fall:)  Here’s a digital mock up what we will see upon completion.  More information at
