Off To Toronto For The Weekend
I just had to take another flower picture! I can`t really put anything too autumny in colour outside because I`ve still some summer colours going on. This English Shrub Rose ( "Eglantyne" Northern Pride) has tons of buds on it still. It`s my favorite of all my roses and is in the front garden. It`s so frilly and such a pretty pale pink. Maybe next year there will be more than one rose blooming at a time. I guess until frost hits, it will keep blooming. It`s more like October weather here. Either wet or chilly or both all month mostly so far. Harder to wake up in the mornings now.
My sister and I are going to visit my daughter on Saturday and she wants to take us to Kensington Market. That should be fun except that it`s supposed to rain all weekend. Well hopefully the weather changes just for that day. We`ll take our umbrellas and prepare for the worse and I`ll take my camera and hopefully get some pictures too.
Can`t wait to see her again.....I miss her and worry about her living there. But her career is there and she`s a city girl. We get to meet her new boyfriend at some point and also her new cat. She adopted him. The cat...not her boyfriend. His name is Bud, seven years old, and he`s so cute!
"I got Bud yesterday! He's much bigger than what he looks in the picture. He's huge! He's not fat at all, just a really big cat.
He's not as nervous as most cats are when they move to a new house. He's probably used to being moved around a lot. He scratched M. when we tried to get him out of his carrier bag, but that was it... and he only scratched because he jumped; he didn't swat at him. I kept him in my bedroom for the first night. Tonight I'll let him wander around the upstairs and get used to that and then I'll let him go downstairs. Just so he can get used to one room at a time... he's already curious about what is outside my bedroom door and tries to sneak out."
And here`s the picture she sent of Bud......isn`t he beautiful? What an expression he has!
I think I`ll take a few days off posting. Have a look through my Richters Plant catalogue, catch up on some blog reading, get ready for the weekend and then pretend technology doesn`t exist for a bit. Need to do some good old fashioned things. I find the computer overloads my brain sometimes. Back to it Monday....Happy Weekend!
