Our summer-like weather has returned, after a long weekend seeing wet snow and hail... we've managed to get many major renovations done to the garden landscape. I am reluctant to let my little old dog Pooky outside with me, however. The mosquitoes are so large and numerous this year that I fear they'll carry her away!!! It is unpleasant to spend any amount of time outside, at a point of the year when I should be able to be in my garden. I don't have allergies to plants, but I am highly allergic to mossie bites - they come up on my leg like small pancakes. I feel like a prisoner in the house until their season is over.
Ahhh, spring and summer in Southern Ontario.
