My name is Rachel Olynuk and I am addicted to sunshine. Yes how true it is, I have built an oasis right smack in the middle of my yard. Fenced and separate it is my sanctuary.. my own secret garden actually. A place where beast or burden are not allowed to enter. Its full of wild flowers, giant impatients, sunflowers, geraniums and petunias. In the center is a pool surrounded by a bountiful vegetable garden of zucchini, carrots and peas and scarlet runner beans. There is a green house bursting with tomatoes and raspberries. The sounds are filled with bumblebees zipping from one blossom to another, while birds visit for a grub or berry. I have a hummingbird family that comes back every year and supply them with some sweet nectar. It is here I could stay for hours and hours and find it very difficult to return to my canvas, but alas the summer here in northern Canada is so very short only 3 months or so. My heart is full of gratitude as I soak up the warmth of the sun, perhaps just a few more minutes and then I will get back to work... and then the minutes turn into hours and hours turn into days. Its the simple things that fill my heart and replenish the soul, just a few more minutes and then I will get back to work!!
