Sherlock Mail

Hullo! I got some mail today - it's from England, judging by the stamp.

This is a cool sticker - looks like a drawing... hmmm... I wonder if this is from Beanie Mouse?

Beary cool on the back as well!

And... Beanie put clear packing tape over the address label...cause last time, the mail with the second clue, got a bit smooshed by water... But the first clue came through just fine...

Smart mouse that Beanie!

Oooh... nice card... These look like from a deck of playing cards maybe?

Ah-hah!!! My third and final clue in the Case of the Missing Bullion... "This is your final clue. Resolve this on your blog and the missing bullion will be returned!" signed by Moriarty Mouse.

Oooh... I wonder what this clue will be...

Well, this is a nice card - looks kind of Monet-ish or... who's the other guy?

Van Gogh maybe?

Yes... Van Gogh!!! And the clue says:
Now moving across town to a brand new location
Not all that far from Marleybone Station.
Once past the park, you need to be looking
For a street that is named after someone who's cooking.
Who lives there?

Ummm... I just remembered...

I'll be right back...

Ahem... Sherlock Sandy here!! I've read this new clue and...

Hmmm... let me think... Across the town from... Florin Court? And past the Park, near Marleybone Station... Hmm... the Park must be Regent Park... and the red marker is Marleybone Station... Do you see what is close by? Baker Street Tube station! Which means Baker Street... And who lives at 221B Baker Street?? Sherlock Holmes!

C'est mon final answer... Sherlock Holmes!!

And... I got some more mail from Beanie!! This is a hot-off-the press new print that Beanie created - it's a cute little mushroom...

See... mushroom...

And Beanie adds cool stamps and stuff - like "Mail Art" and a beary authentic looking post mark from Saint-Roch, Paris from 3 Dec 1926... go figure!

This year, Canada is 153 years young. Hooray!

Garden Update

Hullo... I thought I would do a garden update but... I am so chock-a-block full of adventure blogs that this one is already a month out of date... So this update... is from mid-May. Sigh... anyhow! The chives are blooming and attracting... can you guess?

Bees!! Do you see them?

There!... No, there! They sure do move fast...

Here's one!

 After the chives are done... the lavender will bloom and bees love lavender...

Our carrots are popping up...

The garlic is doing beary well...

And the leeks too... some of them are going to flower and the bees love those flowers too.

In the greenhouse we have some tomatoes...

And the sunflowers we started indoors! We had a few fatalities during re-potting so only three survived...

But our cucumber seedlings are going gang-busters!

And our tomato seedlings too... we are going to put them in pots outside of the greenhouse...

But the cucumber babies are going in the greenhouse...

But we have too many... no fatalities in the cucumber seedling department...

Oh, and the squash seedlings are coming up!

Squash and zucchini actually...

And there we go... cucumber seedlings are planted...

Let's given some privacy to settle in and check outside...

Oooh... radishes are doing good and need some thinning...

Which results in tiny, bear-sized radishes!

Yum!

 Hmm... the beets are not doing great... might need to re-seed some...

This year I am trying parsnip... they are coming up strong.

We first saw them in a garden last year at Gramma's and thought... why not...

Oh... and all this frilly stuff is dill... it just pops up everywhere now...

And these are the bush peas who... apparently... need some support... We thought they could do without support but nooo... so we are trying tomato cages... and then there is more dill... of course...
