This is our long May weekend fondly nick-named the May 2- 4 after a case of Canadian beer, which you can buy in a box of two dozen bottles.
Picture all us frozen Canadians released from our parkas and artifically heated homes and with the doors thrown wide, Barbeque - ing and patio-ing and yes, party - ing. (With our cases of beers!)
Really, it is the anniversary of Queen Victoria's Birthday.
Also this is the time of year when we finally might be able to think we'll not have another frost until September! And so out we all truck to buy bedding plants!
Dick and I stopped at a landmark in our area, the mother of all greenhouses, Canadale Nurseries in St Thomas, Ontario.
This shelf of yellow greeted us. Really, even with the gloomy day we had today, who could feel sad with these in front of you?
Going to the nursery is such a family thing! I was glad to see a lot of little ones with mom and dad.
(Hey kid! Don't finger the hostas!)
If I could, I would just buy one of each geranium.
It's good to see the little ones with mom!
Peonies in June! Memories of the farm where I grew up.
With all these people, I'm impressed Dick stayed with me!
What did you do today?
All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.
