Alberta woman finds lost ring on carrot in garden

Alberta woman finds lost ring on carrot in garden

"She told me "have you lost a wedding ring in" before starting to laugh", said Mrs. Grams, who announce the news by his daughter-in-law on the phone.

Lena Paahlsson told a local newspaper about the event that led to her lost ring, and the way she and her husband, Ola, believe they got it back.

She couldn't find the ring for a decade after.

"I feel relieved and happy inside", Grams said Tuesday from her home in Camrose, southeast of Edmonton. She never told her husband about it, instead replacing it with a smaller ring, hoping he wouldn't notice.

The ring was originally given to Grams in 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman.

The Grams family were tending to their vegetable garden when Mary's daughter-in-law, Colleen, pulled up a big orange carrot with the tiny ring still attached.

Almost 13 years ago, in a garden in Armena, Alberta, about 45 miles southeast of Edmonton, Mary Grams, then 71, lost her diamond engagement ring. "'You know it grew into a carrot?'".

Rail fares to go up again next year
The figures mean an annual ScotRail season ticket between Edinburgh and Glasgow, which now costs £3820, will rise to around £3957. Regulated rail fares make up around half of all tickets and include season tickets, standard and saver return fares.

Last year, a retiree in Germany struck gold in his garden, finding the wedding band he lost three years ago wrapped around an orange vegetable.

This week it was found on a carrot, plucked from the soil on the family farm.

I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law because no other women have lived on that farm.

However Daley would never have expected the ring to turn up on a carrot.

At the time the ring went missing, Mary was living on the Grams family farm, which has been in Norman's family for over 105 years. It was pretty weird looking. Hopefully, by she's now gotten it resized and placed back on her finger.

Now she is thrilled to have the original diamond ring and looks forward to wearing it again.

She went out and bought a slightly cheaper replacement ring, and carried on as if nothing had happened.
