                                                             Late Friday afternoon

                                                                 Saturday.....yuck!



Friday...not too bad...although chilly...cloudy...windy...

We got the grass cut and whipped...looked great!

Friday night rained...

Saturday morning raining...blowing...the waves were incredible...

I don't think I have ever seen them that high up the beach...

We puttered around inside...had some brunch...showered...

Headed home...around 4pm...

It was 9*C!!!! That is about 10 degrees below normal!

The shutters are still on the west side of the porch...

No annuals purchased...6 perennials {Mom's day gift} to be planted...

Geesh...

Sunday was hideous!! Hail....snow...winds...cold...brrrrrr!

Okay...enough of the weather rant...I feel better now...

Today is the same wind and cold...

                                           ************

I hope you all had a nice weekend...

I cannot wait to get back to the cottage on Thursday...

We have a long weekend coming up......

                                    AND.....GET...BUSY!!!

          Enjoy your Monday...

               Cheers!  :o)

  3. We barely had a dusting of snow all winter which isn't good because we have no snowpack for the summer months. It is going to be a dry, dry summer.

  5. Lovely flowers. I had hoped for sunshine for Martha...but it was overcast when she got here. However, that's better than the cold she's coming from. She arrived safe, and look forward to some girlfriend time. She's taking a nap right now...got up at 3 this morning. Rest and Relaxation...that's the menu for this week. Oh we are having pulled pork and cold slaw on sourdough for dinner. Gotta eat!!!
    hugs.

    1. I put a lot of Perennials in containers, Laurie...easier to keep track of out there, in my wild gardens!!

  7. It's supposed to be rainy and cool all long weekend here in Edmonton, but where the rain is needed more is in Fort McMurray of course. I don't think they're going to get as much though.

  8. Look at all the beauty! Those look like fiddleheads in the top pic. Love the curls.
    And don't you just love how wet stones look? I do!
    I don't mind the cool weather as I hate the heat... but snow on May 15 was pushing it a bit!

    1. Just Ferns Suzanne...I tried eating Fiddleheads once...not my cup of tea!

  9. Looks like spring has sprung at the cottage, well, at least a little bit. Too bad about the weather, though. I won't tell you how warm it was here...

    ReplyDelete
  10. All the spring pretties are popping up Linda. You are reminding me so much of my DDs house - even those same ferns along the side, forget-me-nots, and yellow tulips. I am telling tales, but my youngest grandson pulled up her first three yellow tulips, bulbs and all, during our skype session last week - just to show his Grannie! His mother was mighty unimpressed :) Hope the weather is wonderful for this coming weekend.

  11. C'mon spring / summer! I truly hope this long weekend will show a change in the weather for the better. I didn't know you could keep hostas in a container like that! I love your hydrangea header, Linda. Such beautiful colours. -Jenn

  13. This BF has hostas planted in our garden, will have to show him the photo of yours in the container. Lovely photos, as always. Glad you didn't let Devon boast about the west coast balmy weather, ha, ha. Have a good week, LSK. :)

  16. That looks a sounds miserable, Linda. We had it yesterday and today we had some sunshine but still coolish. Hopefully it will be a nice weekend for the holiday. I'm looking forward to having Murray home for 4 days! He's in Winnipeg this week.

  17. Friday probably looks warmer than it was ~ you seem to be restoring order to the garden ~ it looks lovely with the green lawn and budding trees. Must have been interesting with the high waves ~ I expect you felt like you were Queen Canute . . . lol

    Happy time . . :)

    1. Hi Eddie...
      Yes...looks warmer with the sunshine...this weekend is more promising!
      Not sure who Queen Canute is????

      Delete
    2. King Canute tried to stop the waves by commanding them to recede . . . they didn't so he got wet . . . lol
