Welcome to my afternoon and some of the quirky things that happen at Grandma's Place. This week I'm taking a garden break from planting and letting mother nature take care of her plan for watering Anne's Land.
I'm excited to share that the Guardian came out to grandma's and did a write up and a video (over and over) but we gott'r done finally. I can't share with you the quirky things you say behind a camera when it is turned on and I can only hope that Mary is a great editor and takes out all of my flubbers. It is scheduled for this Saturday's paper and I'll be sure to post a link to the on line version this weekend.
The Lilacs are in bloom about the Island and a short drive to Cavendish was a showy one for sure. You will have to imagine the colour that surrounds our little Island as I forgot my camera at home.
The house smelled of spicy rhubarb this week after I made rhubarb chutney.
Doesn't it look yummy?
We ventured over to Victoria's and had our Father's Day celebration with the four Fathers in our lives, Dewar Victoria's cowboy, his dad - Aubrey farmer papa smurf, my seaglassing French Gardener Guy, and our son saran wrap Matthew. Each of the men got a gift bag with a bottle of spiced rhubarb and a little bit of their personality. Dewar got a maze puzzle that can't be completed, Aubrey got papa smurf, Guy got seaglass cuff-links and Matthew got a bottle of my new coffee meat rub. I baked a cake and the four men got to cut themselves a piece of cake first. I put money in the cake and it was fantastic to see Victoria and Matthew light up like they were a kid again.
Well I'm to the bottom of the cup again.
Time to get back at it.
I hope to see you next week for tea on Tuesday.
