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.
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. Montgomery, Anne 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.
