I am visiting friends on a 100 year old farm on Saltspring Island

Today I learnt to build a wall, which I really enjoyed. I like the slapping down of the cement and the slanted turning of the trowel.

We swam in a lake where they released a blue heron earlier that day. The lake is on the farm essentially or on the edge of the farm.

The garden is wonderful. One day I hope to have a garden like this one where the vegetables grow in entire gangs rather than lonely twos and threes.
