Shooting Stars and Garden Updates

This past weekend we heard we were passing through a meteor shower.  We headed out late Saturday night to do some stargazing.  While we did see quite a few shooting stars, we were more amazed by this:






While I think those photos are nice, the most intense aurora occurred just before I snapped the above shots.  Unfortunately, I didn't set my focus right and got the photo below.


I'm still kicking myself for missing that.  

Anyways, here's some garden updates.  The lupine below was dug out of my mom's garden in Calgary, carefully carried onto the plane to Fort Mac in a paper bag, and transplanted into our garden.  I think it's doing pretty well!


Here's this year's "Biggest Sunflower EVER"
