Where do the days go? Between gardening, road trips, visiting with friends, household stuff....Usually in that order ; )
A new little visitor to the feeders these last few days. Hard to tell but he is very tiny.
Chuck and I went for our physicals recently. If you remember we are Canadian so we have "free" healthcare. I made the appointment back in March and the earliest we could get in was this past Monday. I must remember NEVER to book an appointment on a Monday!
Our appointment was for 10:30. We walked out of there at 1:20 in the afternoon! This is a new doctor who took over the practice from our previous doctor. I am so thankful he did as Janice's doctor retired and no one took over his practice. She searched for a doctor and ended up finding one a 1/2 hour drive down the highway.
Anyway, everything is fine and he ended up spending an hour with us explaining how he approaches healthcare which is quite different then our previous doctor. More preventative then reactive.
On to nicer stuff! A new dress I found recently at "Magnolia Cottage" $10.00 and it fits like it was made for me.
With our continuing rain the gardens are so lush, it is incredible.
Janice's "Josephine" clematis. It is on the brick wall as you walk up her front walkway to the front door.
A rose bush in Janice's front yard.
This past weekend we headed to Orono to visit a few antique shops. What a lovely village! The photo above was taken in the basement of the old Orono Armouries. It had been turned into a multi-vendor antique shop. What a great place.
We wandered around for an hour and a half, so much to look at.
Sorry, the photos somehow got out of order! The portulaca's are lovely right now. I have a few pots out on the back deck.
A perennial that Merv gave me, no idea what it is!
Silly little girl flirting with Chuck!
Here is the Armouries. The building itself was wonderful to look at.
Many had great sales on too.
Gorgeous home just down the street.
The library is housed in a beautiful old house. This is the gazebo in the backyard.
Smokey being his handsome self.
The skies have been so interesting these last few days. On the weekend there was a tornado warning down the road a bit but nothing came of it thankfully.
The days seem to be going by so quickly. It is officially Summer now. Strawberries are ripe and so delicious! Speaking of strawberries, I must end this and head out to get some.
