What's new with me

The rabbit didn't get the red lilies this year. I'm thrilled with the deep rich colour.

This is blooming at the same time. Some day I might remember what it is. This is a closeup of one of the flowers on a tall stock.

Thanks to all the rain we've been having the driveway repaving set for last week started this morning. They got the old asphalt removed and a new base down before it started raining, again! It will be completed when we have a dry day.

Fell off my bicycle on Sunday. I have a few bruises the bike is fine. I've come to realize that I have to make up my mind fast rather than dithering over the wisdom of tackling a steep grade. At least my dignity is intact, Paul was the only one who watch saw me fall. I apparently it was not graceful.

I'm on a quest for the perfect pair of travelling pants. They need to be lightweight to pack, comfy to wear while hiking, sitting on the bus and they have to have a little style so I don't look totally geeky in restaurants.
So far I fear that pants like this do not exist....at least for me.
I did try one pair with a very dropped waist but I'm a little past the droopy bottom fit.
It doesn't help that I have an aversion to paying over $40.00 and have a preference for clearance racks.

Beautiful flowers! I think the white thing is a type of allium (kin to an onion) but I could be wrong.

I took your Ontario badge on tour yesterday :)

RT couldn't find the tag. Guess it went when I purged the garage.

Jayne: Yea!

Lovely flowers! And hope your bruises are healing! Good for you for getting out and accepting a challenge tho. I smiled to see the photo of your driveway. My hubby works for the largest asphalt company in Washington...he's a "plant man" tho...not out on the job. Maintains the plant and equipment that make the asphalt.
I was going to suggest looking at Eddie Bauer for pants...but under $40 would be tough.

K: going with what I own having given up the search. It will leave an extra dollar or two for shopping while I'm away. *grin*

It is great to observe somebody put enough craze towards a matter. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon this process. I am lucky I used the time to read on past the 1st paragraph. You have got a whole lot to say, very much to offer. I really hope guys understand this and look into your page.
