Sigh. I should know better. The rule in Alberta is never plant anything (except maybe grass seed) until the Victoria Day long weekend. And yet, once again, I was seduced by the beautiful temperatures and all the sunshine Mother Nature sent our way in April. It's also probably karma - after quietly giggling to myself for the past week or so about all the snow our neighbours in Calgary had received, the Goddess of Green (ha!) has bitch-slapped us all. You see, yesterday, the view on the left was green. Beautifully, luxuriously green. The recent rains had the grass growing, the trees budding and flowers beginning to give us a hint of what is to come. Today? Just take a look. A good 8 hours of steady snowfall changed our city into a winter wonderland. If this was December, I'd be stoked. As it's now May 4, I'm pissed. Thank god my beans are inside. Sigh.
Enjoying the day
