To anyone who adores Wildflowers, Canadian History and Love Stories, this one’s for you! 🌸 📖❤️ Since February, I, along with the most amazing and generous cast & crew from The Sunshine Coast & Vancouver have been rehearsing for a play that starts running Friday, May 25th in Sechelt. It is the true story of Agnes Fitzgibbon who, along with her Mother and Aunt overcame and conquered despite difficult circumstances to successfully publish ‘Canadian Wild Flowers’. A true book of beautiful illustrations and descriptions of Canadian wildflowers threatened by settlement. I’m honoured to be playing Agnes Fitzgibbon, illustrator, widow, mother and the daughter of Susanna Moodie & niece of Catherine Parr Trail, Canada’s first ladies of letters. Based on a true story, set in 1868 in Upper Canada, this new play ‘THE WILD FLOWER BOOK’ written and directed by Louise Phillips will start running for 5 shows at The Sechelt Seniors Centre Friday May 25 @ 7pm, Sunday May 27 @ 3pm, June 1 @ 7pm, June 2 @ 3pm, June 3 @ 3pm. And then onto The Heritage Playhouse in Gibson’s June 15, 16 and 17th.

Another book hangover..... 💔 Loved every incredible word of this story!
Farming, feminism, bushes, and Berton. This morning I traded 4 big bags of books for these gems and some store credit at Ed's Books and More in downtown Sydney. Ed's is a gem. A packed used bookstore complete with cats--what every writer/reader needs #usedbooks #usedbookstore #pierreberton #roughingitinthebush #capebreton @edsbooksandmore

"The aspect of Nature ever did, and I hope ever will continue, "to shoot marvellous strength into my heart." As long as we remain true to the Divine Mother, so long will she remain faithful to her suffering children." -Susanna Moodie, "Roughing it in the Bush" #bookstagram #bookworm #whatimreading #susannamoodie #roughingitinthebush #canlit #naturelovers #moodiemonday
DAY 23 OF 101 DAYS OF HAND LETTERING "We trod a weary path, through silent woods, Tangled and dark, unbroken by a sound Of cheerful life. The melancholy shriek Of hollow winds careering o’er the snow, Or tossing into waves the green pine tops, Making the ancient forest groan and sigh Beneath their mocking voice, awoke alone The solitary echoes of the place." I’ve been chopping wood in preparation for winter and I can only imagine what it must have been like for my ancestors on their homesteads without running water, electricity or chainsaws. We live in a time of everyday miracles, but the tradeoff is that most of the time in our busy busy lives, we take the landscape for granted, ignoring its power and grandeur. #101daysofhandlettering #handlettering #handlettered #susannamoodie #roughingitinthebush #canlit
