Victoria Day Approaches

Spring is my favourite time of the year and this year has been extremely kind.  We have had a beautiful two months already and it isn't even the long weekend yet.  The gardens are coming along ahead of schedule even with the snowy setback on Mother's Day weekend.  Birds are everywhere again and the White Crowned Sparrow has been singing up a storm.

We've been busy starting a new line of homemade preserves for the inn as well as revamping our menu for summer. It's always a struggle to keep to the inside jobs when it is so gorgeous outside. A discipline I confess to not being very good at.  There is always a weed to be pulled or a plant to be moved right now!

The long weekend is nearly here and with it, what is to me, the end of spring and the start of summer. Hope everyone has a happy and safe long weekend.
