Thanksgiving 2017

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving 2017
Thanksgiving occurs in October in Canada, and is a time to give thanks, traditionally after the crops have been harvested.

This year, in Ontario, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation, in which Ontario was one of the four founding provinces. The other three are Quebec; New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Our cool and wet Ontario spring has yielded to an summer that has stretched a few extra weeks into October. The tropical plants remain outside at least three weeks later than most years. The remnants of Hurricane Nate shed its remaining moisture in a pre-dawn, warm, wet, shower to keep the garden mostly green at a time when the leaves are going golden most years. Warm wishes wherever you are.
