Saint Sauveur, Quebec

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.

My Indoor Garden

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
