Weather permitting, work party today!

Hi folks,
If it's not raining at 3:00 today, we'll have a work party. Come if the weather seems reasonable. We can do a bit of weeding, raking, leaf-bagging, schmoozing. If it's too miserable or blustery, let's not. Play it by ear.

My computer is in the "shop" getting fixed, so I don't have access to my "brit neighbours core" distribution list, but just wanted to let you know that, unless there's a huge deluge, we will be gardening in the Greenway tomorrow. We have a lot of astilbe and some irises to put in. Paul and I got them at a plant exchange on Saturday. And I also have some gooseneck loosestrife and crocosmia ... so we have stuff to plant.
See you at 3:00 unless rain.
Cheers, Penny

Work party Monday, 3:00!

Unless it's raining significantly tomorrow at 3:00, we'll have a work party in the Greenway.
Last week, Christine and I moved three skookum rocks from the side of the former Florida Market over into the Greenway (with some absolutely necessary help from four utter strangers, which renewed our faith in humankind).  
This week, we'll do some weeding and pruning, possibly some watering, and whatever else occurs to us. Please join us if you can. Below are our three new rocks; they may look small in the photos, but take it from us, they are very heavy!

Work Party Monday, 3:00!

Hi folks,
We'll have a work party tomorrow in the Greenway at 3:00.
Cancelled if raining!
Come if you can!
We were thinking of moving the two or three large rocks in garden beside Florida Market over into the Greenway. They're big, so we'll borrow Britannia's dolly to transport them. Not sure exactly what else we'll do, but there's always something! A little weeding, a little watering, someone might bring a plant or two.

Work party in the Greenway TODAY (in just ten minutes!)

Hi Brit Neighbours,
Work party in the Greenway TODAY (in just ten minutes!), Sept 2!
Sorry I'm so late sending this message out. I forgot until I was in the woods at UBC. Then "Duh!"
Anyway, weeding, raking, watering, pruning, etc.
Come if you can. Christine and Eva and I will be there from about 3:00 until about 5:00.
