Welcome to my blog. Here I have tried to capture the adventures of our little family and the trials and tribulations of our never ending garden project(s). Take a look around and leave a comment if you wish. Thanks for stopping by. Jer.

Today I learned how to blend photos. This one is from Kyle and Britney's wedding.


The Kiss

This was taken from the flight deck of the USS Midway. I didn't expect to be in San Diego this week, but I was asked to go on Monday when I got to work to help out some of our colleagues from our US office. San Diego is a beautiful city...one of the few places that I have travelled for work that I would actually like to go back to.

PS I like the kid underneath...getting an eyeful!

Hosta Choice Gardens

I just want to give a free plug to a fantastic place that I detoured to on my way home from a work roadtrip on Tuesday. It is called Hosta Choice Gardens and it is located in Appin (about 1/2 hour west of London). They easily have the best selection of hostas that I have ever seen. I also really like that they have a great way to view the hostas; they have a woodland type setting and I don't think I would be exaggerating to say that they probably have near a thousand or more hostas on display and tagged. The great thing is that you can see what the plant will look like at full size. I find that a lot of times with hostas you also get some colour change as the plant matures, so you can see what the colour will be as the plant gets older as well.

All in all a great place. Unfortunately they are closed after this weekend. I only walked away with one lonely Abiqua Drinking Gourd (I know...boring) but if I have time this weekend I will take Nina and the kids out for a drive.

If you get the chance check it out...you will not be disappointed.
