|This is a photo from the Can Am Model T Ford meet held in the Langley, B.C. area. It was a very well organized tour. Thank you Mark and Suzanne for your attention to all the little details. The signs posted at corners to turn were a very nice touch.|
We have had beautiful weather the last week. I have spent a bit of time in the garden, but due to meetings of one kind or another have not been out very much. I am renovating the Japanese garden area a bit more, as the spruce tree has become too large for its spot. The Harry Lauders Walking stick is crowding it out. When I get it all removed I may move the miniature pine tree from the little rockery into its spot. This should allow the moss to spread, as the fallen needles of the spruce seemed to kill the moss. We have had very little rain, and really need more. The leaves on the pin oak, the Virginia creeper and the other shrubs and trees are beginning to turn colors. So far we have eaten 44 figs from our tree. The second crop is ripening now and there will be a few more ready in a day or two. The heathers, michaelmas daisies, cyclamens, autumn crocus and few other perrenials are in bloom now. I must wait for it to get a bit colder before I start to do the trimming of hedges, roses, clematis and evergreens that I did not get done earlier.
