This week is meant to be a rainy one but … the sun is determined to shine and I’ve seen lots of blue skies.
I’ve also seen teacups for the garden at the Burnside Home Hardware:
Yesterday morning I made a list of things to do and shop for and was all around the town. At one point, the overcast skies parted and there was lovely sky:
When I got home, I realized I had taken a sky photo with part of the logo of the one of the few Safeway stores that were being morphed into SaveOn stores ..so the familiar Safeway logo will not exist at the Tillicum Mall any more .. I decided to keep it in the sky photo. Memories.
Back at home I decided to take a little tour of the yard and to see what is going on. Here is a flowering Salmonberry ..
Seen from another view (note my “magnificent” water feature -a sump pump in a washtub .. very effective at drowning out traffic noise!)
The dwarf weeping willow (I have 2) is in full pollinating mode and there were several bees, one big fat one which didn’t like me being so close, I was wearing a black and white shirt and forgot that black is a threatening colour to bees .. and a smaller, thinner bee .. both just bouncing off the flowers. I took lots of photos, but none show the bees. I had fun taking them though!
Again with the blue skies overhead!The Broccolini is growing away:
And the shallots are looking healthy also!I see a flower on the Red Currant .. the Anna’s will love these.
Finally .. memories of yesterdays blue skies …
And now it is time to dash out the door.
I was just practising with Windows Live Writer to see if I could create a quick posting. A bit of a learning curve and it seems to be quite efficient! (Thanks Timethief!!)
