In Stratford, Ontario, the farmers' market reopened yesterday, using only stalls under canvas in the parking lot instead of the lovely big market hall. Food sales only, lots of social distancing with caution tape and dots on the pavement. Everybody obviously thrilled to be out in the sunshine to buy fruit & veg.

Incidentally, the market was the first place we have used cash -- y'know, actual folding and clinking money -- since before Easter; our last cash withdrawal from the bank was on 16 March.

Likewise, the garden centres are open again. We blew lots of dough (plastic, this time) on perennials for the garden, notably a rosebush, several foxgloves and some hellebores.

Still no restaurants, except for carry-out and delivery. And of course no theatre, concerts or cinema.
