Last weekend, I was treated to a special sight. Our chemical free, heavily dandelioned lawn was a mass of colours as a flutter of red admiral butterflies fed on the dandelions. There were hundreds of them, flitting and feeding happily, providing an entertaining Verona afternoon.

A cool morning did not deter market goers as they started last Saturday moming with a pancake breakfast at the Lion's Club. After eating, the satiated diners stepped outside to wander through the Frontenac Farmers Market which has moved outside for the rest of the season. I dropped by 10 year-old entrepeneur Jessica Baye's table . She had enjoyed reading the article about her business "Flowers by Jessica" in a recent column but quickly corrected me on an inaccuracy. Her creations are made of silk flowers not plastic as I had incorrectly stated. Sorry about that Jessica. I couldn't resist her latest silk flower acquisitions and added another flower pen creation to my collection.

Have you noticed the newest additions to our two entry signs into Verona. The Wednesday Morning Club was hard at work and created two beautiful wooden planter boxes around the base of the signs. Looks fanastic. Kudos to these hardworking volunteers who help keep Verona beautiful.

Pies! Delicious home-made pies. My mouth is watering already. Verona Trinity United Church is holding their Annual Pie sale at the church on Saturday, May 12. A wide selection of freshly baked nine inch pies will be sold for $9 each.. 9 am to 1 pm or until sold out!
