T.C. had a blast in Nova Scotia!

It was very chilly the day T.C. and the gang arrived in Nova Scotia! They were so excited about their visit and wanted to begin exploring right away. T.C noticed activity outside my kitchen window and called the troupe to come join her on the window ledge. She was thrilled to see small yellow birds and thought they might be related since their feathers were the same beautiful yellow color.

Once everyone calmed down, we all sat with a nice hot cup of tea and chatted about their travels thus far. We all hoped the weather would get warmer during their stay so they could explore outdoors. During our chat, I asked T.C. if she would like to model for me in my studio. I told her I had just bought some beautiful smiling pansies and that she would look wonderful with them. She squealed at the idea and couldn't wait to frolic in the pansies in my studio. She thought it would be a bit like playing hide and seek.

T.C. was a perfect studio model. I must say she was much more cooperative than my pansies as they liked to change position over time. T.C. kept her pose and was very patient about the whole process.

After T.C.'s long studio session, everyone was anxious to explore the great outdoors! The weather had turned warmer during their stay and they all wanted to dash about before they began their long journey to Delaware in the United States.

Once again, T.C. spotted the color yellow and loved posing with her pals alongside the freshly bloomed dandelions. It was fun to watch them have a little group meeting, where they joked and laughed about all their escapades so far.

Before, I knew it they had made a mad dash over to my flower gardens. They all loved the cute little pansy faces and thought they looked charming nestled around them.

Our time passed too quickly! T.C. and her friends were very entertaining and kept me on my toes. At last it was time to say our good-byes. Safe travels T.C. and friends! Can't wait to read all about your future adventures.
