Minnesota Wild Rice, Sea Wolf, Marigold, Blue Cheeses, berries, espresso and calvados etc.

Suzann gave me a gift (besides her unique hospitality): Minnesota Wild Rice. Anna studied the wide variety of recipes. And we together ended up with this.

Palm Sunday - August 3 - 2008

On Saturday we bought Palms and Pottery. We knew the largest ones had to be replanted in bigger pots.

Then on Sunday we returned to Lowe's Nursery....

.... to buy draing and stabelizing "stones", soil and murch.

We had work to do, Mats and papa. Before we started to work.

Crushed bricks in the bottom

After soil comes rain - Papa is Watering

More soil and murch on top

Drainging holes had to be drilled

Yucca Cane Trees on the Assembly Line

Cleaning up the mess

Finnished - Group 1 - Bromeliad in the foreground (Only morning Sun), Yucca Cane Tree to the Right and the Majesty Palm in the background. The Palms need more Sun and are to be equally treated.

The Majesty Palm is higher than I can reach which is 2,4 meter - 8 feet.

Proud Father and Son. Well done work.

Simply Sinatra - The Consert here.

Saturday Lunch with Lori and Mats
After bringing the new Plants home with Pots, it was a hard days work to find the right ones. We needed a well deserved Lunch.
I prefered a place from where I could see water. (Norse you see).
Lori proposed Clementine ( ohmydarling.com ). At the St. Joseph Marina.
Here is what we got. (Recommended by me for good food and excellent and quick service for a reasonable price).
This was Mats' preference
And here is Lori's (with Mushroms)
Mine - even with French Onion Soup
We asked for "doggie bags", but in spite of that fact, Mats insisted on Ice Cream for dessert. But at another Place. (I suspect he did see an opportunity - LOL)
At the "Cabana" in Saint Joseph, SW Michigan

Lots of people, allways. Large Servings, Premium Quality. Fast and professional service. We have been there before. And will return.

We sat on the Bluff enjoying our Ice Creams. Looking out at Lake Michigan.

The couple beside us on the Bluff: A Day in The Park. Charming, don't you think?
But there is more to come about our doings this Saturday...
