I was so pleased to see my bleeding heart coming up and blooming beautifully. I was afraid the digging for the internet cable had destroyed it.

Then off to the picnic with this great bunch of friends.

We have been having violent thunderstorms, not too surprising given the high temps and humidity. Last night we had a tree come down in the storm and it ended up partly across the driveway. It was a large beech and they are all sick by the time they get that large so it is not too surprising that it fell. But the wood seems to be good, so we'll get lots of firewood.

It is so great to be here in May for the flowers. There are trillium still in bloom and today I saw jack-in-the-pulpit for the first time. They are right along the driveway and must have been here in the past, but I never noticed them.

We arrived at camp yesterday and took our first paddle with the group today to Stony Ponds. There were few bugs and though it started out rainy the temperature was quite mild. The water has receded quite a bit but we only had to go around one really big beaver dam as we headed up Ampersand Creek. It is so great to be here, which will be our home until sometime in December. We should finally get time to relax and maybe I'll even start posting regularly again.

Well at least one aspect of our crazy life is complete. We closed on the sale of the condo today. So one less set of things to worry about. We have our final meeting at the Toll Brothers Design Center Friday afternoon, to complete the selection of items for our new house. Then off for some much needed R&R in St John, Virgin Islands on Saturday. We are there for a week, then visiting my Dad in Oregon for a week, then back to camp to stay for a long while. It will be great to stay in one place for a while.
