Today is the last day of a three-day weekend here in Canada. We are celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday, which we celebrate each year on the Monday preceding May 25th. Queen Victoria was born on May 24, 1819, so she is about to be 196 years old.
Actually though, we are celebrating the beginning of summer. (What? What happened to spring?) Traditionally on this weekend, many owners of cottagers open them up for the season, boaters put their crafts into the water, families go on picnics and watch fireworks, gardeners plant annuals....
I suspect that all of this is going on here except for the planting of annuals. Just last week we had a hard frost!
