Highlights of past Victoria Day weekends (AKA "The May Long" or in Ontario, the "May Two-Four"- referencing the approximate calendar date with the number of bottles in a case of beer) include:
- celebrating the weekend at popular camping destinations in South-Eastern Ontario.
- enjoying warm spring days and cool brisk evenings.
- enjoying cold beer on the aforementioned warm spring afternoons
- taking in the best of the early golf season on the links.
- wearing shorts and showing off the pasty white winter legs
- enjoying being outside when it's too early for mosquitoes and black flies, and the bees and yellow jackets are too busy with pollinating flowers to worry about bothering us.
- it's also the first official weekend of our agricultural growing zone to plant flowers outside without the risk of damaging frost.
- Tulips should be fully opened, petunias in near full bloom, green tips on trees begin to expand into full foliage.
One question though:
Can someone explain to me then ... HOW CAN WE DO ANY OF THIS WITH THIS FORECAST??
