What is new from the patio? Well not a lot. Friday we experienced major internet outages by all three of the biggest providers - what to blame? Heat, humidity & the technology in-explainable Ethernet. This happened right in the middle of a podcast with our bank financial manger explaining to his clients the effects financially from BRExit on Canadian markets. The technology is all good for now.

Most of the weekend saw us at home tending to lots of little odd jobs in the garden. Although on Saturday morning we needed to run a quick errand in town & on our way home, we stopped at our favourite local cat rescue, they were having a fund raiser yard sale. I wanted to donate money, I did not need nor want anything, but in the end I was "given" a framed print. It is rather pleasant, but I think it will hang in the clinic & not at home.

We had the tree trimmers in to do some work on three of our trees; both ashes & one silver maple. It took them most of the day & they did cut out a lot of deadwood on both ash trees & removed a large awkward growing branch on the silver maple.

Our weather continues to be extremely dry & the local corn crops are doing what they call "pineappling" which means the leaves fold in on themselves to preserve moisture, making them look like the tops of pineapples - not a good sign at this growth stage.
