To celebrate (haha!, any excuse will do) we went out for breakfast before hitting the jobs at home staring us in the face.
Our favorite restaurant in the area for a delicious, quick but relaxing breakfast is the Hard Stones Cafe. To our surprise, the name had changed when we arrived. Creek Side Restaurant is the new name and, thankfully, the menu had not changed. Creek Side? That struck me as an odd name since the restaurant is located by the Rideau River. Oh well, it has a nice ring to it.
Look what we got from our dear friends, Iain and Susan. PERENNIALS!
A whole trailer full.
Susan was thinning out her beautiful gardens just when we are starting ours.
So on this wet, chilly morning we popped by to happily take them off their hands.
We certainly have our work cut out for us now.
And if that wasn't enough, Susan baked fresh from her garden rhubarb and ginger muffins served with excellent coffee. *grin*
"Thanks so much for sharing your plants, guys. We promise to give them a good home."
