This weekend is considered "The Start of Summer". It is Victoria Day weekend-& here, at least in Ontario, it is the unofficially the start of Summer. Our gardens are allowed to go in-except for some 'Eager-Beavers' like me who decided to risk it last week. I thought it was mild enough & for showings a small garden would look better than saying "And in that plot of dirt-could go a vegetable garden". Even those who waited are holding their breath because there is a chance of overnight frost! Hopefully we are enough away from Lake Ontario that the frost won't find us. (My friend Kathy is at her summer home on Georgian Bay & they've been told to expect S**W tonight!)
So far we've had 2 showings-one couple came last Saturday & are "discussing it" (so I heard). The other couple came through unofficially first & then with their realtor yesterday-HE wants it very much, she wasn't so sure, she wants to see the lake from the house. Easy enough to cut down trees-we just happen to appreciate trees after living up north! AND-as we keep reminding ourselves-it has only been on the market a week.
So what is everyone up to this weekend-long one here in Canada-regular one for South of the border. I'll dust & after Mike vacuums, I'll steam clean the floors. I have a graduation dress to work on for Shannon (our neighbour's DD)& knitting to do. I'll check the gardens for weeds-they seem able to grow no matter what the temperatures!
