The Day After

Linden Gooseberries. Help yourself!

Hanne by Skaha Lake
Showy Milkweed in February 2010

Showy Milkweed Seed Capsule just forming today.
Shlomo and Helena Coming Tomorrow!
Today is always the next day after the day before, and what an event filled day that was! In our little town, the big Peach Festival Parade took place, with floats and marching bands. We tried to drive downtown but somehow got blocked up with traffic and returned home for a quiet walk in the park! We watched it all on TV ! Today is the day after the riots in Tottenham , North London, I've never seen pictures like that since Hitler let loose his incendiaries in WW2! Now to ?quieten everything down, Soccer Season is upon us once more. And tomorrow our visitors come. Hanne's Danish niece Helena is due to arrive with her partner. So much for quiet walks in the Park! That will wait. I put a picture of gooseberries in for Pat because she has never tasted one before. Help yourself Pat!

Thank you Michael. They were delicious. I thought they'd be green though. I'm really going to have to get some real ones to taste. I'll probably become a fan.
