Cool Breeze and Casual Pets

We have had quite the heat wave in Southern Ontario this week. It actually reached 42 degrees Celcius which is 108 F. That is very unusual for May and too hot for me! It is finally cool enough to open the windows again.

I think we are all enjoying the cool breeze !

Cinderella needs a little more magic . . .

Yep, I am a hockey fan. I am Canadian after all! I certainly love cheering for the underdog . . . as stressful as that is, lol. I think the Montreal Canadiens have certainly given it their all this year! Montreal was up against the number one team (1st place in the regular season plays 8th place in the first round of the finals). . . . and they won! How unexpected was that!?! Now Montreal is battling last years Stanley Cup winners. I'm sure every other team in the League would like to see them knock off the Champs too !

A little magic wouldn't hurt either ! I love this vintage photo . . . it calmly says
"Wait . . . I'm not done yet!"
Go Habs Go!!!

First Blooms in my Garden

I just love May !
In Canada it is the beginning of the best half of the year :)

We have about 500 little seedlings of White Pine, White Spruce and Red Pine planted in our back yard . . . . way back in the tall grass. I hope to convert that area from meadow to forest. You can see a few of the little green tops peeking out above the grass. This is their 3rd summer so I hope they really take off and grow like crazy this year!

My flower garden is starting to have some colour. My cats are thrilled to enjoy some fresh air. I hope to keep them as indoor kitties, as we have coyotes, fishers and owls in our neighbourhood. Not so good for young cats. I'll be putting a hook and eye on my screen door asap. I think they will learn how to slide that door quickly!

My Tulips have survived the nibbling deer . . . so far so good.

My "Snow on the Mountain" is in full bloom. The best kind of snow, lol.

Have a great week and enjoy the great weather !
