It’s Victoria Day weekend in Canada, when, thanks to our forefathers who thought it would be a good idea to celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday on the Monday before May 25 each year, we have a federal statutory holiday. The unofficial start to summer, the quasi-official weekend to plant your annuals and veggies and, with gas (petrol) prices so high this year, the perfect weekend to stay close to home, giving you time to enjoy six things in gardens all over the world, all courtesy of The Propagator’s site. In my garden, with spring two thirds over, most of the bulbs are done aside for some daffodils and Camassia, while flowering shrubs and trees are taking centre stage.
Finally, competing with dandelions and continuing providing yellow, are Primulas. A neighbour gave me a clump several years ago, dug from his garden, saying they come up everywhere. He was right – they self seed like crazy, and I kinda like it! Hope everyone has a great weekend (long or otherwise) – happy gardening!
