Harvesting :: calendula

Calendula is a plant-matter that I use a lot in my homemade lotions, oils, creams, etc.  Last summer I only planted six plants and did'nt harvest enough to dry so I ended up having to order more dried flowers.  This year I have 24 plants and let me tell you - they are keeping me busy having to harvest every second day.  My drying racks are full !!!

And for my friend Louise who is not on facebook but is a faithful reader of this blog here is an updated picture of Rémi ...


Last week Dave and I went camping for 4 days at a very beautiful National Park.  It had been at least 10 years since we had gone.   What a fun time we had.  I'll let you judge for yourselves with these pictures.

Small world isn't it...

A couple of weeks ago Dave and I were at Superstore in Yarmouth going about our usual business and doing our bi-weekly groceries.  We were loading up our cart at check-out when this lady approched me and said ''excuse me, are you Vickie... Vickie LeBlanc?''  Of course I said yes than she immediately recognized Dave ''oh, and you're Dave, I recognize you''.  This very friendly woman is from Barrie, Ontario visiting family in Yarmouth and she reads my blog.

She just so happen to be at the next check-out at the same time as us.  So yes, it is a small world isn't it.

Hello Jene (you'll have to comment so I know how to spell your name :-))  Hope your return to Ontario was a good one.
