I picked 4 more strawberries off the 10 plants I bought for $20 - total strawberries are 24 which means each strawberry only costs 83 cents. Soon I will be at break even level! And the rat/mouse has left them alone since I scattered bay leaf around them. The raccoon has been back - this time eating our neighbors cherries as I found a "deposit" in my yard full of cherry pits. I bet the little bugger had a belly ache. Now I not only have to pick up Buddy doodoo but I have to pick up Mr Raccoon doodoo too!
Hubby is back from his business trip and there will be no more travelling until September. I took him down to the marina so we could see if the seals were still there as have family coming in next week and we want to show them the seals. Sure enough, they were lazing in the sun on the booms. This is not a great picture but the best I could do with my phone as we were a fair distance away.
A boat was leaving harbour and they were talking about the large jellyfish just below them - another not great picture but this jelly fish was 2 feet wide, not the usual small ones we see. It was yellow - I believe it is called a Lion's mane jellyfish.
I made a small find this week - a keeper. This is a small metal tile with glass melted on the front of it with cork backing. The glass bits at the bottom are Venetian beads therefore this little tile came from Italy - I knew the second I spotted it. I paid a whopping $3 for it.
