Yes!! White and green paint gleaming . . . over the freshly restored carpentry. Me, Charlie, coffee in a bright red mug. Mock orange and Bessie rose fragrance wafting through the air. Bird song: cardinals. Canadian flag flying pr... Read more
Fragrance!
Wednesday, June 20, 2018      34 comments

I stepped out my door this morning at dawn into a world of fragrance. My palest pink floppy rugosas (the ones I call my "Bessie" roses, after the first owner of my old old house). And: some mock orange too. Ohhhhhhhhh. Inhali... Read more

A low key day yesterday turned out to be just the right thing. It was so hot here that the appeal of exercise outdoors was fairly low! DH opted to spend a good part of his Father's Day watching the American Open (and yes, absolutely he's entit... Read more
It will be hot . . .

. . . and humid here today: with thunderstorms scheduled for tomorrow. And I am feeling totally lazy, after a busy week and a busy Saturday (yes: all the usuals --laundry, gym, library, groceries.) What's up for today? I still do nee... Read more

This morning I came across this wonderful poem by American poet Hayden Carruth: new to me (and, I think, quite as marvellous as Mary Oliver -- another great American poet). "Testament" captures something of my current mood -- Partially a re... Read more

Very little opportunity to garden at my house so far this summer with the major exterior renovations still underway (yes yes: it WILL be lovely!! Eventually!!) But gardening (and this is despite my seriously arthritic hands which make me fe... Read more

Green green golf
Tuesday, June 12, 2018      29 comments

Perfect temperature: slightly cool in the shadows of the trees. And then the warmth of buttery sunshine on the fairways. The smell of freshly mown grass. Bird song: yes, that's the oriole! The sound of water sprinklers and (occasionally!) th... Read more

The kayaking was lovely! Kingfishers and dragon flies and yellow water lilies in bloom. But the water level was quite shallow, even for our flat bottom kayaks. When I ran aground, I had to get out. And sank almost to my hips in thick mu... Read more

Oh yeah. Three Trvia questions wrong in 1 day before I got three right!! Gahhhhh. Junior Mints or Sno Caps: who cares? (I never eat 'em.) Gahhhhh again. Pesticides worse on strawberries or grapes: who cares? (I wash 'em.) Ga... Read more
