SAGE: Victoria Day Weekend and Opening for a New Season!

    May Long weekend 2013 brought sunny skies, 
blooming earth and tourists to us at the St. Albert Grain Elevator site.  We’ve had a slow start to each morning, but sure enough happy and relaxed tourists always arrive with the afternoon sun! 
  On Saturday we had a wedding party take pictures with the majestic grain elevators.  We also had a visit from the Conlin family, and enjoyed the company of Marcella’s puppy Mischief.  What a lovely long weekend!   

  With breaks from tours, we successfully planted the   vegetable garden on Sunday and patiently waited for    rain.  We were all delighted by the sprinkle on Monday afternoon, but still are crossing our fingers for more!

   Marcella also baked a cake on Monday so we could properly (in the best old fashioned way) celebrate Victoria Day weekend.  Her sponge cake was  delectable!  Our guests seemed to  enjoy it. 


    On Monday we also enjoyed a quick visit from a horticultural writer from Ontario touring St. Albert.  Hopefully our gardens are up to her standards!

With a successful opening weekend behind us, we’re really looking forward to more sunshine and visitors all season long!
