Hello to Everybody on the Far North Forum

Hi Everybody on the Far North Forum,

It has been quite some time since I've had a chance to post as my schedule has been exhausting and I've spent most of the last 18 months working 7 days a week.

I've had a chance to read some of the threads on the forum and I want to congratulate all of the moms and grandmothers with new additions. In October, my daughter had her first child, Peter - I've attached a picture of him. Although I feel I'm too 'young' to be a grandmother, I am really enjoying my visits with him. My daughter and her husband live about an hour from us in Ottawa (we are about 10 km from the Ontario border in Quebec).

I can see that everybody is still busy with wintersowing. I have had great success with this method and I find that most of the seeds (especially perennials) germinate very well with this method - thanks to Sharon and Marcia for teaching me all about it.

I will try to post a little more often - I've missed my GardenWeb friends.

Long time no hear Marileana, good to see you back.

Your lit' Peter is sure a sweetie, congratulations!

I have a few days off next week, I'd better get started on my wintersowing too.

Hope to see you around the FN forum more often ;)

Hi Marilena, welcome back! Peter's such a handsome little guy! He's just one month older than my Elizabeth.

Hi everybody,

Thanks for the compliments on my grandson Peter. My daughter really loves dressing him up and he looks like a little man with all the outfits she buys him.

He's a really big baby and at 5 months he weighs 19 pounds and is the height of a 1 year old. My daughter is 5'11" and her husband is 6'2" so I guess this explains it.

He's such a good baby and I have never heard him cry.

Oh, he is a sweetheart with those big blue eyes! Just wait - Darius is 9 months old now and so much fun! Being a grandma is great. I'm finding that i enjoy Darius in a way i didn't have the time to enjoy my own kids, which is a little sad. But that's the way it is, i guess. But hey, crawling around after a baby is a lot of fun! And hearing her say "Bye-bye" and seeing her point to a baby in a book - there are just no words! :)
