My little corner of the world...

After a whirlwind visit from in-laws from the north with French exchange student in tow, it looks as if summer is finally visiting southern Ontario. I should be writing today, but after putting together a list of things for Patriot and pondering what I could do with The Platinum Ticket, I looked around the house and felt the need to clean. My brief cleaning has given way to writing a blog entry.

Ahhh, procrastination.

After vacation we came home to a lush garden and a yard in need of maintenance. When it was done I took a few minutes - and a few photos - and enjoyed my little corner of the world.

First - a couple of shots of the garden. I can't take any of the credit here. The green thumb belongs to my wife.

Another shot of the garden. Note the strawberry barrel with some of the sweetest everberry strawberries I've ever tasted.

Here's our outdoor dining area. I love the flying saucer look to our gazebo.

And here's the little corner I like best of all. The perfect spot for a little reading, writing, entertaining or just plain procrastinating...

Awww shucks, I guess I'll get back to work now.
