Guest photo from last midweek, from THE Oysterville Garden:
Sunday, 5 March 2017
Now it feels like we have returned from spring to winter:
Having missed our garden club dinner last week, the North Beach Garden Gang met for brunch at Salt Pub. (All but two photos today are by Allan.)
The five of us lingered over our table for two hours, catching up on all the gardening news. It was especially pleasing to me to be greeted by another diner there, Lorna, who used to own Andersen’s RV Park and was one of our top favourite clients for the many years we gardened there.
I had just been thinking how now that we have six fewer big spring clean ups than we used to have, bad weather is not a crisis in the early spring.
In the afternoon, I simply finished a book I started last night.
Yesterday evening, I read a short post apocalyptic novel (Thirst, by Benjamin Warner) that I only mildly enjoyed. Today’s choice was excellent; I especially appreciated that the protagonist was autistic and I could well identify with her ways of coping in the world after a comet hits our planet. Turning from political non fiction to post apocalypse fiction hasn’t been that much of a change. Coming up soon is Swallows and Amazons which should be much cheerier. I haven’t even started it and I’ve already dreamt about reading it.
