"Here he is posing for Grandma last Spring Break."
Bandit and Aiden are the best of friends. If you are looking for one, you are always sure to find the other. I have a difficult time getting some "natural" pictures of the two of them, as they both love their picture being taken and both pose every time !
I am certainly glad Art came Friday to cut the hay field, as a couple of years ago both Aiden and Bandit were missing in action. It was quiet a few minutes of calling before the hay started parting, and out came the two of them !!! Boy Oh Boy, did they both get a "blast" from Poppa.
I have a busy week ahead planned, as I have enrolled Aiden in a Bible Vacation School with the local Baptist Church, which runs every day from 9 am until 12 pm. After lunch there will be trips over to Berford Lake for a swim and some Sandcastle creations, or heavy duty moving of sand. Maybe we could "sneak" over to Elliot's Garden Centre for the "odd" ice cream cone for a treat. Then of course, there will be our daily walks, as Aiden, Bandit and Lexus all love to walk. It will definitely be busy a busy week, I am almost certain of that.
Wow, yesterday was another "hot" summer day. We, once again, took to the bike and went up to the Ferndale Garden Centre, were we purchased some oxygen plants for the pond, and some annuals for some new containers, and old ones where the plants needed replacing. I don't know why I buy pansies every Spring, as when they grow they get too spindly and do not take to extreme heat too kindly either. I had to re-pot three containers.
"Two basket containers planted with a little hardier annual and relocated to the North side of the house."
Rob had repainted an old outdoor plastic plant stand and chair in this deep blue. They now both stand out so nicely on the white deck at the front of the house. Good colour choice, Rob ! Thank you.
"Pansies removed from this basket and re-planted with a Portulaca, much more heat resistant."
"Japanese Bell Flower."
"Three different varieties of Lilies."
"Oops...this isn't a Lily....but a Coneflower."
I have a load of laundry in the washing machine, and I am sure the weather will be "more" then fine to hang it out today.
Humidex advisory in effect.
Wow humidity is to be 80 percent today, so I hope my laundry will dry out on the line. Phew....best be in a cool place today !
I had best be getting done what needs to be gotten done before I am unable to get it done, as it just might end up being a "sweat box" in our home before long, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard."
