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!! 🙂
