Oh joy!

Today I made a mental note: blog that I am really happy and lucky that I have not one, but two jobs that I enjoy. I am also lucky that I like all my supervisors. I sure have had some crappy ones in the past (as well as good ones) and I definitely can appreciate the value of a good one. Both jobs are also 100% flexible with each others' time tables, so I've chosen to drop the greenhouse job for July/Aug and just teach fulltime at this summerschool program that'll be starting up.

I've been learning a lot this week as far as the greenhouse job goes.. mostly the names of plants, and how to divide tufts of grass. Today I learned what thrips look like. Apparently they are not good insects at all. My mom and I went to the Van Dusen garden show on the weekend. We frolicked around like crazy monkeys and both bought 8 watergarden plants.
