a long weekend
Looking back to last year's entry of this diary, er blog, I see that I've already written about Canada's Victoria Day long weekend, so if you are interested, do visit that post. This year it's a wet long weekend here. After a very early and warm spring, even a heat wave in April, we've been having a spell of cool and very wet weather with heavy thundershowers battering flowers. That's a rather typical pattern on the westcoast, though earlier this year.
Everything is very lush and overgrown in our garden now, calling for pruning, weeding and deadheading, and tying up rain flattened tall perennials. Yesterday we were able to work outside for a few hours before showers returned. Today, it's an indoors day tidying up and cooking a dinner for good friends coming here for the evening. Tomorrow, if it rains we may head out for some shopping which we haven't done for a long time. Back to the kitchen now!
