We are headed into our first long weekend since ‘Victoria Day’ – and yes, it was named after Queen Victoria – and the weather totally sucks.
Struggling to hit 20C and blanketed in heavy dark cloud, without the merest whisper of a breeze. And it keeps pouring with rain – stopping for 30 mins – then pouring again. It has been this way ALL month.
Struggled to repair some rain damage in between the downpours today. My poor delphinium was literally flattened, the nepeta all look pathetic, the roses (heavy with blooms) almost prostrate and so it went on.
Such weather really gets this gardener down. Some things are doing okay – but nothing is doing great. You know it’s crap when even the zucchini are just sitting there sulking.
All the same, Happy Canada Day to my fellow Folian compatriots!
