Most Canadians know that it is tempting fate to plant those delicate flowers and seedlings before the May Long Weekend. Well, this is that weekend. Happy Belated Birthday to Queen Victoria. Because of her, we have a long weekend in May. The weather in Ottawa could not be better. Time to fire up the BBQ and test the air conditioning.
If you need to pick up something today for Mom (for her breakfast, lunch, supper or snack) here is a wonderful shop to visit.

This is a superb opportunity for amateur and professional photographers to get out and take some flower and people photos. The spring was cool enough that the tulips are just blooming and the big beds of colourful tulips are inspiring.
