Toasted bun with Mayo, basil, and green onion on the bottom. Burger was cooked with just a little bit of bbq sauce and mozzarella melted on top. Then really fresh tomatoes and lettuce.

This was the most amazing burger I’ve ever had.

I went to one of my favourite stores in Toronto over the weekend (Morba - just west of Bathurst on Queen Street). Took a few pictures while I was there. I could probably spend hours just looking at everything there.

I loved the matching cigarette holder and lighter globes in the case in the first picture. Some really neat clocks as well you can see a few in the second and third pictures. The last picture gives a sense of the store itself. Unique finds on shelves, in cabinets, up the walls, hanging from the ceiling. It’s a little bit overwhelming when you first go.

The only thing I bought was a new lunar globe. Not old, rare, or unique but still different in its own way.

( pressuregradient - everytime I turned around I saw something I think you’d like. goldfarts / masc4cruller / greatestape - I think you guys might all like this store if you haven’t been already)

What’s flowering on my balcony today: Zantedeschia cv.

I salvaged this plant in the fall two years ago, it grew well but didn’t flower last year and this year has rewarded me with two beautiful flowers, white with just the faintest hint of pink around the edges in the inside of the spathe.

What’s flowering on my balcony today: Dahlia ‘Mystic Fantasy’

Back and better than ever for its third year.

Iris ‘Gerald Darby’

This cultivar caught my eye with dark blue new growth early in the spring and later the dark purple stems which hold these unusual flowers after pretty much all my other Irises have finished.

Persicaria polymorpha

I planted this in August 2008. This is a plant that is firmly in my top perennials. Ideally it would be in a damper location getting a bit more sun but as you can see above it has no problem with dry shade - you can see the trunks of two pine trees on either side of the picture.

It starts flowering in late spring through probably mid summer or later with regular dead heading, it branches and reblooms at each node reliably.

At over 6’ tall by maybe 8’ wide it is a big plant. But this also makes it a perfect shrub alternative in areas that might get too much snow dumped over the winter or damage by wind or possibly salt spray (not to say that it does well with salt, more that it does better than a shrub with stems that could get damaged).

I’ve just been back to my parent’s house last night so I’ve got a few pictures to share of things flowering. I still don’t have Internet at home though so still on hiatus for the next couple of weeks.
