My 31 Days of Edmonton week 3

This is the third week of The Local Good’s 31 Days of Yeg Challenge. I’ve been playing along since the contest launched. It’s been fun reading everyone’s stories of Edmonton in the #31DaysofYeg Twitter stream and it has encouraged me to blog more consistently.

Here is what I did last week for 31 Days of Edmonton:

July 14

On July 14th I shared a photo of the lilies I had just transplanted. A house is being torn down a block from here (which is a shame in this neighbourhood of hundred-year old houses) and neighbours were invited to help themselves to the plants in the gardens – how nice! I transplanted several clumps of lilies into the front gardens.

On July 15th I shared this great photo of a dragonfly, they have been doing a great job taking care of the mosquitos in the last few weeks.

I also shared this tweet about Edmonton’s first Food Forest Project. I wish I could have helped with the planting bee, but I had an all day meeting so I had to miss it. I enjoyed all of the photos that were shared in the Twitter feed.

On July 16th I shared this tweet about how much I enjoy seeing gardens in alleys. Here is the garden in the alley across from my house.

On July 17th I tweeted about how strange it was to not see the 102 Avenue Bridge as I travelled on Groat Road. This was challenge #4 – Tweet something that is missing in Edmonton #notinyeg.

I also retweeted this fantastic photo from The Grand Market on 124th Street. I didn’t make it to the market this week, but I thought some of my tweeps from #31DaysofYeg might be there.

On July 18th I tweeted about watching in the K Days parade, enjoying lunch at Taste of Edmonton (challenge #7) and cooling our feet in the City Hall Fountain (challenge #26). Paris and I had a great time after deciding to go at the last minute.

On July 19th I shared a photo of the pot hole that has been filled in on 126 Street. I am so glad it’s been filled it, it’s the biggest pot hole I knew of in Edmonton. This was also challenge #4.

On July 20th I volunteered to work in the gardens at Fort Edmonton and I shared a photo of one of the gardens on 1885 street. Many of the plants in this garden are used in dyes.

I’ve had a great time exploring Edmonton for the last few weeks, I’m looking forward to another week of fun.
