extra-long weekending

hello and good morning everyone !!!
we are in the middle of an extra-long weekend in victoria,bc
with victoria day monday (hurray...) and 
a school district pro-d day tuesday (yipee...)

the weather has been glorious...
so we are outside enjoying every minute of it

yesterday...we decided to visit finerty gardens up at the university grounds
come take a look...
the rhododendrons were in full bloom
and they came in every colour of the rainbow
finerty is a free public garden
and is situated in the beautiful grounds
 of the university of victoria (ian's and my alma mater!!)
we use to visit these spots in betweeen classes and to break during study sessions
and i seriously do not know how we got any work done back then
the whole garden is spectacular
but my favourite places are still the ponds !!!
these yellow flowering bush
let out the most fragrant scent...
ian always heads straight to it for a quick fix !!!
i have my fingers crossed that my son chooses UVic for his undergrad
I've pointed out the spot he will find me sitting 
(if he ever wants to meet up for lunch...)
it is always such a treat visiting this garden...
we are lucky because it is just a twenty minute bike ride from home.
