"Flowers ... have a mysterious and subtle influence upon the feelings, not unlike some strains of music. They relax the tenseness of the mind. They dissolve its rigor."-Henry Ward Beecher
1016. On the 19th we celebrated our 31st anniversary. We've come a long way baby! The photo is of us on our wedding day (top), and us earlier this spring (bottom), against a background of the anniversary roses I got from my sweetheart.
1018. I am so enjoying my hanging baskets. I think our cool weather is agreeing with them. Here's a little comparison: what they looked like when I first put them up on May 8th and now.
1019. My yellow lily bloomed! It's my Mother's Day gift from son last year. I love it when gifts keep giving.
1020. I found out the name of the trees that grow along the path behind our house. They're Hornbeam trees.
1021. It's strawberry season. We bought a flat from Driediger Farms. They are some of the juiciest berries I've ever had—such a treat. For a potluck tonight I'm making Strawberry Trifle (I'm trying out this recipe).
1022. Scenes from the mighty Fraser flood of 2012. Yesterday we went to check out one of our favorite trails—the Fort to Fort from the Heritage House to Derby Reach. Here's E. on the path. Any more rise in water level and that path will be gone. The last little bit of the path into Derby Reach is under water.
But that's nothing compared to the campsite. Here we are at the picnic area.
And this is the campsite. Each pole designates a camp spot.
1023. And this is my 2000th blog post. That is another reason for thankfulness!
Now to tackle the last week of June! What are you up to this week? And where is the time racing to?
