Pink Alpine Forget-me-nots
Pink Alpine Forget-me-nots
Friend Doug found this unusual pink Forget-me-not plant, on our slow hike in the alpine meadows of Plateau Mountain on July 17th. Its tiny pink flowers were so pretty, but something about them not being gorgeous blue just didn't feel right, lol. Can you believe that it's only 12C (54F) here in Calgary this afternoon? Such a relief to get some cool air after a few hot days. Unfortunately, it's also raining, though we do need it. Two possible trips this weekend, so I'm hoping it brightens up before then! Glad I took myself west of the city for the afternoon yesterday, as the weather was beautiful. Saw a few interesting things, from Ladybug larva and nymph to an Osprey catching a fish (no photo) to seeing my first Skunk in the wild (a few blurry, useless shots, but I might still post one for my own records - and you are more than welcome to laugh : ) Wish I could send some of this refreshing rain and coolness to all you guys out there who are having dreafully hot weather! Oh, panic! Had an e-mail from one of my good friends in England today, saying that one of our other friends "thinks your shipment is on the move via Toronto but no more details". I'm reading that as meaning that the 12 boxes of belongings (of my Brother and my parents) that are coming from England may have landed in Canada and might actually be on the road to Calgary! Oh, my goodness, I have so much to do before they arrive, including guessing at a value for around 400 little sentimental items that Canada Customs insists that I make. My friends sent me a list of all items, I just have to think up the values. I was motivated enough a couple of months ago, but then everything came to a halt when the busiest time of the year, for me, arrived. I need to do some more clearing and definitely some cleaning (which never even makes my priority list or any kind of list, ha!) before I want to let anyone in through my front door. Also, a slight hitch in the sale of my brother's house in England. Apparently, the buyer is asking for a further reduction, reckoning that survey estimates that he had done, were inaccurate. I will be so relieved when all this has been seen to - it has been a very long seven months! I also have to see to getting someone to come and remove all plants and bushes from my garden (someone is going to find out about the landscape people who see to the Condo's landscaping), with the possibilty that I might end up having to get a "platform deck" built, to fill the complete, tiny back garden. This would solve the problem once and for all! Need to find some names and pricing.
Alpine Arnica
Alpine Arnica
This "perfect" flower was growing in the alpine meadow on Plateau Mountain. Photographed (telemacro) on July 17th. Think I'm correct in saying that this is an Alpine Arnica. Such a pretty flower centre. Apologies again for seemingly endless flower photos, ha! Received an e-mail this morning, giving me the number of the ship container that is bringing the 12 boxes of sentimental belongings left to me my brother and my parents (from England). Apparently, the vessel is due to arrive in port around 3/8/11. I'm assuming the boxes will be travelling via Toronto. So, I don't have much time to do more clearing in my basement and some desperate cleaning before I can let anyone see my place, ha!!! Still have to see to a list of items, adding individual values for around 400 small items (of no value to anyone else, but of great sentimental value to myself and my kids). I should, instead, be finding someone to dig up everything in my back garden so that a wooden deck (just above ground level) can be built to fit the whole area - it's only very small, but has to be done, as I can't bend and kneel for the upkeep of any garden at all. I'm facing a fine if I don't get this done - and very soon! It's almost impossible to find anyone who will do just a one-time job - they all seem to want weekly work. Panic! Later: there is hope yet! Just got home from calling in at one of the big lumber stores and got lots of information about installing a ground-level deck. They will even come out and remove all plants/shrubs from my two borders and a short length of nasty (i.e. non-native, lol!) Cotoneaster hedge and level the ground if necessary. I was given a very approximate price estimate for the wood itself and will arrange a date for the builder to come and visit my back garden and see what needs doing to prepare it for a deck to be built. It never occurred to me that the same person/people would remove all plants, etc., too, so that solves two major problems for me! Such a relief. Of course, I don't look forward to getting the final estimate - but unfortunately I have no choice but to get this done. Thunder and lightning rain storm just arrived (6:00 p.m.). Only 16C (61 F), so feels nice and refreshing. Wish I could send some of our rain and cool air to those of you who are having to deal with very hot weather!
