They let me out… the yard

I’m still in Covid jail but whether they let me or not, I walk in the huge park next to my house. I cannot stay in the house. That’s why winter is so hard for me. Don’t worry, I follow the rules – I go alone. I never speak to anyone – well, there was that guy practicing his violin but I stayed really far away. But really, how often do you see a guy practicing his violin in the park? I’ve only ever seen someone practicing the bagpipes. He was a wise man!

This woman had the right idea. The weather is great – not too hot and a bit windy. I was glad Canada Day passed off without any nonsense up in Ottawa. I spend my days on the balcony in the boughs of a delicately leavy tree nursing my sunflower and some other seedlings that are surprisingly popping up in pots.

Elder blossoms in the Park

Reminds me of my dad making elder wine and all the bottles popped in the side-board cupboard. Granny was cross!

Good for butterflies

All is blooming and soon I will get out of this Purdah … I hope!

  1. Better to have COVID in summer than in winter! You should be free soon! A new kind of trial that so many of us have dealt with in the past two years! You are one of the lucky ones: you are getting better!


  2. Oh really hard luck – so far into the pandemic and you caught it!! It’s rife over here but there is no panic.- the odd person still wears a mask but the rest of us just get on with living. Had hoped to come to Canada this summer but the price of air travel put me off and I only seemed to be able to find routes that involved at least 3 changes and the chances of me and my luggage arriving at the same destination(or even the same land mass) appeared to be very remote.
    Will try and skype you some time this week.
