Last week I went to visit Saint Eustache. St. Eustache is an off-island suburb of Montreal on the north shore of the Mille-Iles river. The center of town is the old part where you see beautiful old houses and buildings which remind you of another era. Here are some pictures of this charming little town.

Saint Sauveur is a small town in the Laurentians 60 km north of Montreal. It is well known for its local ski areas. In summer the many restaurants and cafés, as well as outdoor concerts, attract a number of visitors. It is a town full of life, but just a few meters away in the back streets it is very quiet and you will see beautiful country homes.

some people still sitting outside even it is getting colder
Since summer has passed and the weather is getting colder I have to bring in the last of my pots of plants. I am lucky to have big windows and during the day my plants get lots of sun, so they can continue to grow. Since I miss summer so much I create my own garden room in the house.
Pots of plants are placed all around the room and on the table
In the back there is a large pine tree on which I have placed strings of lights to brighten up the dark evenings

I bring in my outside furniture to make it look like a terrace
