On Replay: The Innocence Mission – Lakes of Canada

I just discovered The Innocence Mission while listening to my recommendations on

Their style is dreamy folk… at least that’s how I would describe it 😉 Currently I am addicted to the song “Lakes of Canada” from their album Birds of My Neihborhood – just beautiful! Karen’s vocals are so gorgeous! Lakes of Canada  is also covered by Sufjan Stevens but his cover is just half as nice (imho).

Oh, and I love the photo (taken from their site)…the girl in the foreground and the guys fading out in the background 😛 Yeah…the photographer knew who to focus on 😀

Cherry Blossom

Spring has arrived and I thought I’d share a photo I took today. I am not sure if it is a cherry tree, to be honest. The blossom looks like a cherry blossom (I think), but then again I am no botanist. The only way to find out is go back to the tree this summer and check what fruit it carries 😉
