Dig, Plant, Patterns, Mulch

It’s Monday of the first long weekend of the season here in Canada, and I am totally exhausted.  Statistics say that the chances of a warm and sunny Victoria Day weekend are slim to nil, but this year we got lucky!  Saturday and Sunday were absolutely gorgeous – hot and sunny and not a drop of rain, and today is shaping up nicely as well!!

Next weekend my parents are coming for a visit (Yay!!!), and we are going to Exposure, the Photo and Video Imaging Expo in Toronto, which happens twice a year in the Spring and Fall.  It is a day that I always look forward to because not only are all the big name camera and accessory companies there selling their wares, but there are also free photography seminars all day long!!  I always come home with my head swimming with new information.

So, because I will be very busy next weekend, I took advantage of the good weather this weekend to dig up my gardens and get all of my new flowers planted.  I am really not much of a gardener, but I do like to try and perk up my property with some colour in the gardens (small though they are).  I made two trips to a greenhouse an hour away from my home (awesome place – totally worth the drive) to replace some ailing perennials and buy my hanging baskets and annuals, and then I spent most of the rest of the weekend digging and planting.  That is why I am exhausted, but it was so worth it because now it is basically all done, and I can enjoy my summer.  However, as a result, my brain couldn’t handle anything complicated for my blog today, so I decided on some building close-ups from our trip to Windsor.  I enjoy zooming in on buildings to capture the different patterns in the architecture.  How about you?

Ok, my blog is done for the day, so it’s time to finish off my gardens by spreading some mulch. See ya and have a nice day!! 🙂

    I don’t really do any gardening. I do love the patterns you’ve found in the buildings. That first shot is amazing.

    • Thanks! That’s the only gardening I do. I spend one weekend planting and then I just sit back and watch. If it grows, great! If not, oh well LOL! I am not one of these people who is out messing around in their garden all the time. I have too much blogging to do :).

    Send the nice weather over here…I’m tired of wearing a jacket 🙂 Nice shots. I should try this in London.

    • You really should! I think you would be amazed at the neat patterns you can find. Sorry about your weather :(. Daniel is coming home tomorrow, so you will probably get sunshine now LOL. I don’t think I could live in England because I thrive on hot, dry weather. I live for summer. You should see the beautiful tan I got this weekend from the hot sunny days. Sorry, is that rubbing it in just a little too much?? 🙂

    Agreed… what a fantastic weekend. Weather was great! your right about the Victoria Day weekend you just never know… I am starting to become a big fan of ‘Global Warming’….. great shots and I like the patterns. The first is particularity striking!

    • Thank you! I really appreciate that :). It truly was a fantastic weekend because I got every single thing on my to-do list done plus I got to sit and read, and it is ending off perfectly with a good old thunderstorm to water my freshly planted flowers. I love when the rain holds off until nighttime. Glad your weekend was fantastic too!!
