    I was able to go for my usual ride to the end of Russell in the west end, thanks to the humidity finally going down a bit. It’s been a terrible summer for cycling. Last year was so much better. People continue to dump their trash on the edges of Russell sadly. I still prefer to ride to the end of Russell though since it’s quite peaceful as I follow along the river from the east end. Still missing our riverfront trail on the east end too, but it should be free from construction next summer.

    I planted one of my sunflower seeds harvested last summer from my plants. I decided on only one since I just have my balcony and if I plant more than one in a pot their height suffers. They get quite thirsty too so I’m not sure how they would do on their own in the city. The one in my planter is about 8 or 9 feet tall now and growing it’s large flower head. I should have a lot more seeds to harvest at the end of the summer. I still have a whole bowl full from last summer too. But I’m still not sure where to plant them in the city since they do need some care.

  2. you know, looking at the stairs i thought a lenticular type thing would be kind of cool to see. Perhaps a two-sided message of some sort, one on the top of each step and the other on the sides. Just a thought.
