A wonderful surprise happened on Wednesday, and when I was completely exhausted from planting 10 bushes and 2 young trees, with help from Nora!  These beautiful flowers appeared! Frank had received a message from Jen, in N.Z., to go to our Wolfville market, open on Wednesday p.m. , and pick up these flowers she had ordered for us, from Seven Acres Farm. They are so authentically garden flowers, not imports, just amazing, colourful, natural. A lovely little event at the end of a long day, and for no special occasion, making it an occasion!!

Well, it’s been almost a month since any word from this blog site. I have to admit to a truth I know…it’s easier to do something daily, then sporadically. When I had a daily commitment to this blog, I was “on it”.  Once I gave myself leeway, as doing a daily blog takes time, it was not a big jump to not doing it! So, here I go, trying to get myself back on track. It’s September, after all, when we are programmed for things to start up again. : *Our first days back from Ontario, we were “gifted” with watching Noah. Noah was a great help mulching the gardens, and very involved.



Then came a weekend when Noah’s parents were here too, and they were put to work as well.  Here Jockel and Noah removed two bushes and their roots! to prepare for a new tree this coming weekend. Noah is using the shovel he requested for his birthday! a true gardener.


Drea was working in the front…moving a tree forward in the garden. Notice her “supervisor” to the left.


..and then Nora and I planted 9 bushes and two young trees…a real feat! on a very hot day. One more tree to go and it’s all done for this year. Whew.


Flowers that Nora brought…all wild…they lasted a week. The word is out…I love flowers.

So, part of not doing the blog was not knowing what to write about anymore, but the blog  has always highlighted the things I love. Nature, gardening, flowers, friends, family, creativity…wow, I’m getting myself psyched up to keep going!
