Hi folks. Yesterday, Mona stopped by my place and picked up Jerome2 (a smaller version of Jerome that had been in my garden all summer). Mona has friends for Jerome and the lads should be on the road again shortly.
Glad to hear this has been revived. It was discouraging for a while there. I just heard from Mona - she is ready to hand over the boys, so I am going to meet her Wednesday afternoon in downtown Ottawa. (With work schedules, that's the next feasible time for me to rendez-vous.) I'll give them the lightning tour and it'll be off to the next host. :-) Who's next after me?
since we had all that trouble with the last group I decided that it was appropriate to have RCMP boys to escort gnome jr. so now he will travel looking for his big brothers
with Bowinkle and miss winnie the bear
they all like the fresh seeds I told them it was not for eating
I have to go to my horticultural meeting and I have to find the boys since they are now somewhere in the house playing with my daughters they all decided to make a movie which will be posted on youtube tomorrow, so this all for now will post more later tonight
Hi Ann, I had proposed meeting at one of the properties whose gardens I maintain - not sure yet if it's a good location for Mona. We'll D-mail you! I am all over downtown throughout the course of a typical day.
Yippee..won't be alone for Thanksgiving..guess who arrived last night...I'm thrilled...last time they were here for a visit I had 5' of snow and it was Christmas...wow, any longer visiting the world and they'd be back in snow...
It's really going to take me a looooooooong time to catch up on the *Continuing Adventures of the Gnomes* but I really want to say how much I enjoyed looking at all the wonderful pictures here (lovely people and plants).
Mona I really, really enjoyed looking at your lisianthus! Years ago, when I lived up north, I was able to purchase a wonderful selection of the doubles every year but, sad to say, they are much more difficult to find down here. I usually can find at least one double every year but not the colour selection I was spoiled with before (will have to make a point of hunting them down elsewhere or head up north just to visit that amazing greenhouse again.
Sue, the printed list may have had changes that never made it to my computer; so it's likely correct for whatever reason, I no longer remember. But if they take a detour, so be it. I'm glad that your latest pics are still on the camera. Really sorry about any you've lost. Reminds us to make back-ups, I guess. I know it's time for me to do one.
