I had a lovely day on Saturday. My daughter's gift to me was a day out at Niagara on the Lake, a very pretty little town on Lake Ontario down near Niagara Falls. The Niagara Peninsular is a little micro climate and it was quite a bit milder down there. It was a gorgeous day and all the gardens, orchards and vineyards were all a little further on than here, it is only 40 minutes from where we live. We had tickets to the B & B open house tour so we spent the afternoon wandering around the back streets, peering into people's gardens and going through some beautiful heritage properties. About half way round we were gasping so made our way back to the main street and sat down in a little cafe and had afternoon tea! Cucumber sandwiches, scones and cream and pastries and we scoffed the lot! A truly lovely day, the tulips in particular were everywhere and spectacular.
On Sunday my youngest son gave me some seeds to plant, but the weather was altogether different, grey and quite chilly and later on rain. So I will sew those out later in the week.
Even older son remembered to call me from Banff to wish me Happy Mother's Day. All in all a lovely weekend for this mum.
