We're not sure what's going on here ...

Somehow this bike got wrapped up on this construction sign on a street next to the CBC. seen is not sure what statement is being made here. Is it art? Is it a protest against construction? Is it a lost bike?

Community garden

seen is not sure how this little garden works. In some places in North America, anyone can take vegetables out of some gardens. These may not be one of those gardens, but it's out in the open on a space near Rawlin's Cross and the vegetables are thriving.

Great growing season

This has been an exceptional year for growing produce across the province. Local lettuce, local corn, local everything has been available for sale.

This St. John's garden has never, ever, never ever had a tomato ripen on the vine. Never!
Except for this year.

Signs of winter

Something we don't normally have to point out ...

This sign is on the front of Velma's - a local restaurant in St. John's. With the way the weather has been the past two years, it's likely the first time the sign has ever been put up.
