I had the pleasure of joining Jim, mutual friends and his guest, Patrick Gossage, in a lovely luncheon.
Between courses we all stepped outside to sing Oh Canada accompanied by Annie Froese's husband, Herb, on his trumpet.
Afterwards, we toured the grounds and their secluded rest spots under and between the trees. We admired decomposing willow chairs, outdoor art, flowers and native grasses which make up the extensive gardens. Below we are in Jim's studio/guest house.
Quite a spectacular way to spend Canada Day, wouldn't you say?
