The weather here in Toronto has been so crazy this spring. It’s been rainy and damp and then it will start to get sunny and warm up and then just as you start to think that maybe the weather is beginning to finally get nice a huge wind storm will come up and then the rain and cool weather will return for a week or so.
Sigh … I give up!
I tired of this weather and I can’t wait for it to warm up and for the sun to stick around. My plants on the other hand seems to love this weather. They’re getting enough water with all the rain and I guess the cooler temps is just right for my Spring plants. It’s like my garden was reading anabolic halo reviews or something because every time I look out my window at my roses they get bigger and bigger!
The biggest rose plants are along the fence that is going to be replaced next week by our neighbors. See the last post for the back story on that … yeah I still don’t even know how high the new fence is going to be … but I do know it’s going to be very similar to the fence one of our neighbors put up across the street, according to a conversation my husband had with our next door neighbors a few days ago so I guess I can put up with how it will look … but if they’re going to do it they’d better do it soon because my BIGGEST rose is on that fence – literally ON that fence, it’s called William Baffin and it’s a thorny monster and every single day it gets bigger and more brutish .. it’s going to be terrible to put up a fence around it next week!
Later today I’m going to go and knock on our neighbors door and ask some questions about the fence that they are so generously paying to put in or replace. On one hand I’m appreciative that they are paying for the new fence because we cannot afford to pay for a new fence between our houses at this time … and the current fence is truly falling apart – we’ve been repairing from our side for three years now. But on the other hand I’m simmering with pent up anger that they haven’t had the decency to come and do a face to face meeting between my husband and I to tell us exactly what kind of fence they’d like to put in and to get our input. It is after all on our shared property line so we do have a say in it’s height and design.
I don’t think they mean to be inconsiderate, they probably think they’re being helpful and that they’re doing us a favor and they’re partly right in that the old fence will likely fall down by next year if it’s not replaced … but I’d like some say in a fence that I’m going to have to look at daily. OF the four of us (my husband and the other couple) I’m probably the one who will look at the fence the most since I spend the most time in the backyard working in the garden or just plain looking out the window at my garden and thus the fence … so it’s very important to me. Whereas for the neighbors I think it’s just a fence.
Anyway .. back to the weather. Are you starting to get good weather in your area or are you longing for solid sunny weather in your area too?
