Yesterday morning I got a phone call from my neighbour, telling me the neighbour on the other side had died of a heart attack. What a shock. I just can't get over it. Not that we were good friends, more passing acquaintances. Sad.....he has a wife and two grown sons. He was only about 67 years old I believe.
I had ordered twelve Phlox roots from a company in PEI, a couple of months ago. They arrived yesterday much to my dismay, considering the fact that I can't get them into the ground yet. I usually receive this type of thing in June. What to do, what to do.....the only thing I could think of was to pot them up and put them outside on warmer days and bring them in overnight. I phoned the company to check it out telling them I'm in Newfoundland and we still have snow on the ground. The woman I was talking to said to go ahead and pot them, they should be fine. Now I have a kitchen table full of pots, I only hope it warms up SOON!
I heard a lot of chattering outside near supper time yesterday and went out to see what was going on. Well, there were two squirrels, one lying prettily in the crook of a tree and the other a few feet away kicking up the biggest fuss. He was yelling at a neighbors cat that was going across the property. Grabbed the camera, of course, lol. I got a few shots, but with my excitement and the sun almost in my eyes, they are not that good. I'm putting them on anyway as I don't very often get a chance to see them this close together.
I figure this is a little girl just sitting there, seemingly quite relaxed with her arms sort of crossed.
This shot has the little fellow, yes, I figure he's a male and the little girl....mind you I could have this wrong, but it makes a nice scenario.
