I have finally made it into my garden, finally got dirt under my nails and ingrained in my hands. Summer must be on its way. It is a little cool today but that makes for great gardening weather. I had been looking at those empty pots for too long and everything in the beds was coming on too fast and I had to rescue some fledging shoots from the bully of the garden. I am not sure what it is called and I do like it, a green and white variegated ground cover, it certainly brightens up the garden but it wont stay where I put it - likes to take over the entire bed. Anyway I have been out there and done a bit of taming, the pots have been potted, just the pool to clean up now and the pool service is due later today.
My daughter is off to a wedding this afternoon, a beautiful day for it - and I expect she will be taking notes as to what she thinks is and is not a waste of money. She has been comparing notes with other already married friends, things like is it worth spending the $4000 for the midnight buffet. She asked her friend, I mean she was at the wedding but can't even remember it, are most of the guests gone or too drunk by midnight to care? Questions like that!!
Tomorrow her and I are spending the day together. Niagara on the Lake a very pretty town near Niagara Falls holds a B & B open house tour and she has bought tickets for us as a Mother's Day gift. She bought these before the engagement and looming wedding - I'm not sure we would have spent a whole day on something like this if we had known of the proximity of the wedding.
The engaged couple have decided on the venue, it is in a vineyard near the Niagara escarpment, we all went out to check it out on Wednesday. It was p**sing it down and the vines were just sticks and it was spectacular, so come a hopefully dry day in September it should be beautiful. That's a big chunk of change right there, in fact the biggest chunk of the whole event. Next weekend the search for the dress commences. Now that sounds like fun!!
