    Greetings all,

    Still raining here, gloomy & chilly too. Woke up to 46 degrees - is winter making a return?? Feels like it the past 3 days.
    Grandson #1 joined us for dinner today & then both kids went back home as my son was not working OT tonight as previously thought. Haven’t been able to do anything outside the past few days but did pick some nice strawberries.

    Mick, looks like you have a lovely drive this morning & no rain, haha!!
    I hope everyone is settling back in at home & the bunnies are getting plenty of rose petals. Animals can be so weirs sometimes

    Hello to Cyn, PQ, Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone os doing well.
    Have a nice night all.

    Lav

    MAE ALL...

    Summer hit today, 85F. One son went out to Strathmore yesterday for the weekend so the other son and I headed out to Banff. Banff has been closed to visitors but opened this weekend so with the gorgeous weather we thought we'd just wander around in the mountains. Never thought of work once. LOL

    Mick...with all that lush grass I'm surprised they went for the roses. Kids these days, geeze! Good to hear they were healthy when you picked them up.

    Lav...that's exactly how it felt last weekend for me. Cool, wet, grey and windy. So it looks like you our weather patterns end up in your neck of the woods a week later. Be prepared, it could be pretty toasty for you next weekend. LOL Nice that your son didn't have to do OT, it must have saved on your staples.

    TG...glad your back is feeling better and that you were able to get mobile for awhile. You take it easy.

    Wishing everyone a restful evening...PPQP

    Re: 30 may

    Good evening friends on this Memorial Day!

    We always had a parade going through town, I miss that living here in cow country.
    Sunny & milder today, finally. They say we had 3.5” of rain the past 3 days, geez. Nice to be able to go out & walk around a bit.

    PQ, I think I just heard some unsettled weather is on the way for Thursday & Friday, oh well. Glad you had an enjoyable outing with your son. Also glad there was no work thoughts!!

    Mick, glad yuo had an enjoyable weekend too!
    The strawberries are coming in nicely & soon the blueberries will as well. Trying to keep the birds away from the fruit salad with netting this year!
    Funny pics, especially the last one. I am guilty of enticing my visitors with goodies too

    Cyn, sure hope you are getting around OK & feeling more comfortable.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie!

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...it's always good to hear the peskies are happy and healthy when you get back from your travels. Some restrictions are coming off starting tomorrow and I just hope everyone doesn't turn into idiots and think they're invincible. The government is doing 2 week intervals with eliminating all restrictions by July 9th. I'll just keep my comments to myself. LOL

    Lav...do you think the town had a parade this year? The city usually puts on a huge Stampede Parade but they've cancelled it again this year. At least someone is thinking right. No rain in our just hot sunny weather for the week. There'll be lots of people at the community garden watering so that should help with the vandalism. Every year one of our volunteers plants about 5 flower pots for the garden. She planted Saturday and on Sunday when she came to water someone selectively helped themselves to some of them. No vandalism but come on, how much does a bedding out plant cost! I would really like to plant raspberry bushes in the garden but apparently their roots can be very invasive so it's been voted down twice.

    Working on some signage for the community centre so may have to pop in for a bit tomorrow, we shall see. Made hamburgers for lunch so think I'll have breakfast for dinner. LOL
    Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 30 may

    Greetings all,

    Nice day here, tried to do some trimming of the fast growing shrubs around here. I still have to go back out & pick up all the trims. The bees got in the way earlier & I’m not messing with them.
    I don’t know what variety of raspberries YB has but they grow like crazy. He pulls roots out, pots them up & sells them at the auction where the Amish sell their veggies. We get a LOT of raspberries every summer.

    PQ, I honestly don’t know if there was a parade in town or not haha! I was so used to the parades in our old hometown where the fire company drove a few trucks (YB usually behind the wheel of one) & the high school bad where my kids reluctantly marched & played, haha & the Girl Scouts & the Boy Scouts, etc. We live 7 miles south of town now so we have no idea when something is going on up there.
    That’s sad about people stealing plants - idiots!! Do you guys have motion activated lights & a camera pointed at the garden?? Maybe a big mean dog too, Lol

    Pauly, I think the bigger east coast cities like NYC & Philly really get into their parades under normal circumstances. Funny how the small towns come to rely on these events every year.
    We had a plumber here last week to install a water source on the deck for all the plants we hove out there. This guy did all the work when this house was built so it was like a little reunion, haha! I hope your husband picks up some work this week & gets out of your hair.

    Mick, it’s the same here with a bunch of anti-vaxers making noise, foolish. You can’t talk sense into some people. Personally I think they should be refused treatment if they get sick but that won’t happen either. I did hear today about naming the variants with Greek letters, haha!
    Today, June 1 if the beginning of hurricane season & it’s supposed to be as busy as it was last year, swell.
    Hope the bunnies are full of grass & roses

    Cyn, hope you are doing OK.

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 30 may

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...I'm sure if it wasn't those kids, we would have found them strewn all over the garden and green spaces. Nice that you were able to get to a BBQ and doing nothing on holiday Monday sounds perfect to me. Hope hubs gets back to work soon, I hear you about being out of routine with him around. LOL

    Mick...we are now under a heat wave warning and it's only June 1st. Yikes! Wed, Thu and Fri will see temps around 88F and then rain for the weekend to cool thing off. They allowed restaurants to do patio dinning so all the businesses built patios and 2 weeks later they shut them down. That restriction has now been lifted. They have increased capacity for various outdoor activities but just by a little. I'm a little more concerned with step 2 slated for Jun 10th opening up indoor activity and removing mandatory work from home. Thanks for the info on raspberry bushes that's great. I have bookmarked the page and you know what I'll be growing next year.

    Lav...see what happens when you plant wild flowers. I will definitely be investigating raspberries especial if I can contain the roots in a bin in the raised bed. I have a camera pointed at the garden but it doesn't cover a whole lot. I didn't go into the office today so will have a look next time I'm in. Can't have dogs in the garden but maybe I could train a rabbit? Hope you don't get clobbered during hurricane season, we'll be watching out for hail!

    TG...thinking of you and hope things are healing quickly.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang....PPQP
