Today's Quote About Manitoba...

The earth seemed to shake as the bear walked towards me. Boom. Boom. Boom. Actually, it was my heart beating out of my chest. ~ Jillian Recksiedler


Speaking of Manitoba...

When I'm not keeping my eyes open for bears wandering into the yard, I'm playing in the garden!!
There are so many really unusual plants here in Manitoba. One that really caught my eye is called a Kiwicha.. I don't know if they come in any other colors, but this particular one is ruby red.  Apparently it is from a very old family of plants that have been around since the Aztects and really good for you. They even added the seeds to a hot pan and they popped just like popcorn. Never expected that!!
