This is in light speed .. Racquel from Perennial Garden Lover dropped me in it .. threw me off the bus in front of it .. then drove over me, making her get a way ..
This is FAST ... so get out of the road .. move to the side ... here it comes.

Born in the Canadian "highlands" of Cape Breton Island which is part of Nova Scotia for you people who have no idea about Canada .. Nova Scotia is actually deemed "New Scotland" from its many Scottish emigrants .. my father's family came in the mid 1700's from central Scotland, and stayed mostly in Guysborough county for literally hundreds of years.

I can't explain what being a gardener is to me .. I know all of you who are involved in this world know most of what I mean. But .. I have been ill .. my husband has been as well, all at the same time. He has stabilized thankfully,and loves to play golf, and travel a bit. I on the other hand can not travel any more .. my garden is my play ground and taking pictures of the sky a true joy (I can't think of any other descriptive word other than my name ? sheesh !)
You have to have a good sense of humour to survive LIFE .. there is no doubt of that, in what is left of my mind ??
.. Yes .. my cats are my kids now .. even though we still have our son at home .. and he will be for ever probably. It is called "Adult Kid Who Won't Leave Home Syndrome" apparently many more of us are out there with this syndrome affecting our "kids" ? .. heck ! why would you leave when you get all the services here ? laundry .. but NO cooking .. unless it is turkey or spaghetti .. or meatloaf ... what a menu ?
YES .. I am a morning person .. the neon night ware, I insist on, so I can see where I am going in said night, is to find the bathroom ... even with the millions of little night lights we have .. well, they are for atmosphere ?? .. : )

We have lived all across Canada and four years in Europe ..the Netherlands , South Limburrg province .. Schinveld, the village where we lived in a very nice Dutch home, with a courtyard garden and a small pool with gold fish .. we called one "Lefty" because he lost one fin during a freak cold winter with snow and ice .. well, the fin stuck to the ice .. we had no idea .. but he went on to swim a little strangely and was a happy goldfish : )
# 6 ... what number am I at now ? JEEZ !! I worked in an international NATO library while in Holland and became the computer clerk that got to TELL everyone when it was time to close off their programs and GET OFF those computer stations .. my boss said she wanted a taped recording of me giving those instructions to our clients (before I left) because they were all scared of me and got off QUICKLY ;-)
