I came to the city to see if summer had perhaps become hung up on the shore of Lake Ontario and so hadn't made it to cottage country but it hasn't arrived in Toronto either and now we're into August where the nights get cooler(?!) and daytime heat generally looses(!?) a bit of the "intensity" of July! Seriously the only thing approaching warmth I've found up north this summer was in a 5'x7' washroom in a local restaurant that was actually being heated in July!
I'm at the point where I don't even feel good about saying "at least its good knitting weather!"! I'm sick of "good knitting weather"! I want some "too hot to knit" weather, I want it now and want about a month of it!!
Craptastic weather aside, modest FO's were generated last week. I'll work on some posts for those once I get the laundry underway today.
The Cork Board got "finished", covered in photos and hung on the wall. That's a WIP shot above, I'll get some FO pics of it for next week.
Berry Season has been fabulous both morning..
...and night ("Lemon Feather Cake" with "Lemon Filling"from Vintage Purity Flour Cookbook, whipped cream and fresh local blueberries - yummmmm!)
The Daylillies, having a heavy bloom load from all the rain yet being "Day" lillies only open a single blossom when sufficient sunlight makes it worth their while to do so, still have several days worth of blooming to go here in the first week of August when they are usually already done by mid July!
We've also noticed the Dragon Flies are growing very big this year ;)...
Anyway, today in Toronto is a sunny, if unseasonably cool day. While last night's soccer game wasn't a frigid affair for us spectators, (first time this season!) We did get drenched in rain during the final 10 minutes of the game and I understand there were a couple of big cloud bursts here earlier in the afternoon and there was also more rain over night so the gardens should at least be easy to weed.
I'm going to focus on the sunshine.
An FO post will be up here at Sel and Poivre tomorrow for sure! Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!
