Actually, the Queen was Victoria, not the current Queen, however, in Canada, the long weekend marks the official start of Summer. I think that spending 5 or 6 months in frigid temperatures, with icy walks and snow to shovel makes a long weekend in May even sweeter.
My crab apple trees are in flower, as are most of the neighbours'. You can smell apple blossoms as you walk down the street.
Saturday night, a friend and I indulged in another lovely summer treat.
This is a Killaloe Sunrise Beavertail. You might notice that I had to take a big bite, while it was still hot. It is serious junky street food, a fried piece of sweet dough, topped with butter and cinnamon sugar, and served with a lemon wedge, to squeeze over the top. They sell other flavours, like Nutella and Reeses Pieces, but this is the original flavour, preferred by the locals. In the winter, you have to eat them with your mittens on, but in the summer, you can sit down, on a warm night, watch the people go by, and think "I am sure this can't be good for me."
