I previously showed you pics of my bosses garden and my perk for working for him, but I did not say what kind of work we do. Here is my boss at work...

Oh and I see our labourer doing some work too. Leaning against the ladder. And no..absolutely I do not work on the site..I just take pics and pick veggies from the garden back at the office.
It is a school that we just finished building.
Now we are going to fix this school.
Removing 2m around the perimeter of 4 walls to replace spalding bricks.

And here is a picture of the school we finished last year.
It is nominated for a Builders Excellence Award. As it should be. Nice looking school.

Wow..that is alot of blogging for one day.Got work to do now.
Have a Great Day

Oh How His Garden Grows!

Every year my boss says he is not going to plant his garden as big as he does. Every year he plants it bigger.

The thing is..there is no one to eat it all...even 1/4 of it. His kids come out every now and then to collect some veggies..but not enough to warrant a garden this size. I don't know why he bothers doing it so big..it is lot of work for him and ..let's say...he ain't getting any younger. Is it a male thing?
The cherry trees were unbelievable this year..sweet and sour both. Strawberries..not so good.

Fig Tree...Peach Tree...Grape Vines...forgot to take a picture of the Yellow Plum Tree.
In the garden (oh- there is another one around back) he has garlic..leeks..potatoes..tomatoes..zucchini  
..squash..snow peas..other peas..onions..3 types of lettuce..hot peppers..green and red peppers. Basil..rosemary..thyme..some kind of red bean..and who knows what else!!
So can you go and pick your lunch off a tree when you are at work..Perks!!!

Happy Picking!

I Wish

that either of these were mine..but they are not. My BFF sent me these following pics. 1st one is from her BOM she did through the Fat Quarter Shop. She did an awesome job. And the 2nd is a picture of a quilt at The Apple Blossom Quilt Show (somewhere) in the Maritimes and she knew I would appreciate that border and it is hand stitched. Enjoy!
