Lake Erie: August 21, 2010

Port Stanley: Harbour – 4:15 PM. Settling in for an evening and perhaps a night of rain.

Port Stanley: 4:15 PM. My roses love the rain. This one is "Graham Thomas" a David Austin English Shrub Rose.  I recommend this one and most of the David Austin roses for easy care, glorious colours, lushious scent and repeat blooming through the summer. Another great one to start with is "Abraham Darby"  which is fairly common in garden centres around here.

Lake Erie: August 20, 2010

Port Stanley: Harbour – 7:00 PM. A very warm, breezy day that hazed over in the evening. The humidity, which wasn't bad in the first place because of the wind, faded away at dark. It's very comfortable now and the moon is almost full.

Port Stanley: August 15, 8:30 PM. This appeared on the back side of the storm as the sun set last evening. It always pays to look up.

Port Stanley: East side – 5:45 PM. The Lake was lazily restless all day.
