Now, in case you didn't know, Winter is a big deal in Canada. After enduring six months of ice, snow, sleet, and mind-numbing, soul-sucking cold, we're all a bit shell-shocked, you know? We need our oh-so-brief-but-glorious Spring and Summer to bring us back to life, to forget the horrors of Winter and remind us why anyone would ever choose to live in this God awful climate in the first place.
But this year, Spring just... didn't sprung. And thus far, Summer's interest in making an appearance seems to be casual at best. I'm not going to lie, it's been taking a toll on our moral. The first drop of rain,the slightest dip in the thermostat has us sighing in heavy exasperation and muttering to ourselves about the Gosh Dang Weather. I've been trying to make the best of it (Knitwear is still appropriate! Yay! Everything is green and lush! Super!), but this week I finally had to admit that the game was up and that the whole "It's good for the plants" spiel just wasn't going to cut it anymore.
The thing is though? All this rain we've been having? It really IS good for the plants.
So yeah... there's that. And for those doldrums that the garden can't cure? Well, there's always cross stitching.
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
