Currently, it's 28˚ C in Fort Erie, with scattered clouds. We're expecting scattered thunderstorms tonight, with a low (low!) of 19˚ C. Tomorrow's predicted high is 24˚ C, with more thunderstorms.
The light of my life and the delight of my eyes is a big believer in "found" gardening. We're both fond of wildflowers, like buttercups, clover, those miniature daisies, and a bunch of things we don't even know names for that come up in the lawn. I'm particularly fond of forget-me-nots, but basically, if it's small, pretty, and colourful, we're both into it. (Don't tell the neighbours, but we both actually think dandelions are pretty.)
We're pretty sure that the lady who lived here before us must have had flowers all through the yard, rather than confined to specific garden patches. There are all kinds of things that poke up from the lawn (if I hold off mowing for long enough), and we're pretty sure that lots of them were actually planted as flowers, rather than weeds that just kind of showed up.
One example is something that we're pretty sure is related to roses, given the shape of the leaves and the thorns on the stems. It didn't have much of a chance until I stopped mowing the strip of lawn closest to the front of the house, to give the light of my life and the delight of my eyes a chance to weed out the grass and see what else came up. It has been unmowed for a couple of years now, but this is the first year that it has actually blossomed. Too bad neither one of us actually knows what it is.
On the genealogy front, I'm still working through SladeGenealogy.net, looking for Slades who are listed on both sites, and putting in links to the SladeGenealogy site on those profiles which are on both sites (or at least, the ones that are open), so the profile managers can look and see what's there, compare sources, and make any additions or corrections to either site that are necessary. So far, I'm up to the "H"s.
