Mayflowers and a Winner

                                                                               Hello everyone,
                                            I hope you all enjoyed your weekend a long
                                           one here in Canada as we celebrate Victoria
                                           Day. My daughters and I went on a little
                                           trip down to Maine ~ a six hour drive from
                                           here. It was a speedy trip but we enjoyed
                                          spending time together and a little shopping.
                                           The weather was lovely here and before I went
                                           Andrew and I enjoyed a walk on the trail and
                                           I spotted some Mayflowers blooming....they
                                           may be tiny but they have an amazing fragrance.

                                                  “Do you know what I think Mayflowers are, Marilla? 
                                                     I think they must be the souls of the flowers that died last summer,
                                                    and this is their heaven.” 
                                                              ― L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Green Gables                                                                                                                               

                          I spent the day today getting ready for our first garden tours that
                                     start this Friday. Since we had a slow start to spring it seems
                                     everything is coming at once. I cleaned our little garden cottage
                                    before we left and started setting up the screened porch for
                                    the summer with wicker chairs and our old iron bed etc. but
                                    still have the little touched to do yet. It is so nice to be able to
                                    enjoy meals out there again.
                                          I was amazed at how the garden changed in the short time
                                    I was gone......more color everywhere.I will have to get some
                                    shots to share in the next few days.
                                          Now getting to the giveaway that many of you entered
