Apple Blossoms celebrating Spring!

Apple Blossoms celebrating Spring!

Spring is here and the apple blossoms are in bloom! This verse seem appropriate for this time of year.
We are celebrating the Victoria Day Weekend here in Canada. Victoria Day celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday (May 24th). Canada is still a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, of which the Queen is head.
Victoria Day is always on a Monday, and thus the holiday is part of a long weekend, which is commonly referred to as the Victoria Day Weekend, the May Long Weekend, the May Long, or the May Two-Four (a case of beer there is called a “two-four” and many of these are consumed over the holiday). The weekend is also called the May 24th weekend, although it does not necessarily fall on May 24th.
The Victoria Day Weekend always falls on the weekend before Memorial Day in the U.S. Reference from About.com
