We couldn’t wait it out any longer, dear readers…Robin and I visited our favourite garden center this past Saturday!!
Last spring – the first in what was then our brand new home – we’d already scoped out the nursery three or four times before the end of April; we were so excited to get our amazing balcony space set up for the season!!
It’s not that the anticipation of a summer spent enjoying our “terrace” has waned…but the weather gods simply will not cooperate!! Vancouver’s growing season is a full month (if not more) behind where it was last year at this time; despite the sunshine – thank goodness we had at least that today! – it’s still cold enough that I had to layer my striped woollen cardigan under my moto vest to keep the shivers at bay!!
But the warm weather will come; and there are definitely more trips to the nursery ahead for us, too. We could barely fit the few small plants that we bought into the trunk of our Solstice…and we have more than a dozen flower boxes to fill!!
