Off to Nanoose.

It’s different, not walking Her Highness. Friday morning, regardless of the sunshine, I baked a cake to take to Nanoose Bay today before donning my work gloves and venturing outdoors. Dianne’s posse of many friends is gathering at a waterfront cabin she rents every year. The chocolate cake I baked for everyone went over very well last year, so I’m taking another.

Then I had to go into the village for some U nails. I am constructing some ‘cages’ to keep Deer away from the new plantings in the front yard. Both are trees, so in time, I will not need the Deer screens, but for now, I do. It’s wonderful working outside when there’s glorious heavenly warm sunshine keeping me warm and inspired.

But go, go going makes me tired. By 2:00 I was pooped. I get up at 5:00, so 2:00 feels late in the day. I stopped working in the yard to have a wee nap and then to make icing for the cake. Then I had a spa and did some more reading before heading off to Stacy’s for dinner. 

I had a blast at Stacy’s because her sister, Kris, and Kris’ husband, Steve, came by for a chat and drinks before Stacy and I sat down for dinner. I took my curried chicken for us, and Stacy made a salad, and it was a nice, informal, comfortable evening. We’ve all become such great friends! And I’m going to Kris’ and Steve’s for dinner on Wednesday with Neil. They are long-time friends of Neil.

Here are some photos of Pinecone Park. I’m off to Nanoose Bay for the day to see Dianne and our posse.

The fragrant something I got as a tiny shoot.

Laburnum1 I'm getting another for the front yard.

Garden Under the Trees. It's the big garden.

Fern Garden where nothing else will grow.

Studio garden.

Deck garden. I love the tree.

Clematis on my deck.

My new caged Flame Maple.

Front garden. I know, not much to see, but the new Lilac in
its anti-deer cage is blooming on the left.




These Frens are as high as my nose!
