This is going to be a random post in which I revel in the warm, sunny, t-shirt weather. With 24-hour sun, it stays warm all night! I walked down to the channel yesterday lunchtime and took this video of the ice flowing down-river. In just a day you can see the difference, and now the river is almost completely clear.
If you compare these pictures to the ones from yesterday, you can see what a difference a day makes! It was neat to see people by the river having picnics and BBQs and watching the ice break up and drift away. We do what we can to entertain ourselves up here!
This warm, sunny weather has got me in the mood to grow things! I have a planter on the patio ready to go for flowers, which I will get from the greenhouse on Saturday (more about the community greenhouse later). A few weeks ago I started some herbs in little pots in my window -- I bought this starter kit at the local Home Hardware.
This is what they looked like after a few days (from left to right - basil, cilantro, oregano). I planted them in alphabetical order so I would remember!
