The old saying "April showers brings May flowers" has certainly proven to be true this month! The mix of rain, snow and cloudy weather has made for an interesting April, but blue skies and sunny days are coming soon!
Hopefully all of the rain we have had lately has made for lots of beautiful spring flowers. Don't forget to buy a bouquet for your mother, as Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 12th.
Speaking of warmer weather, it's important to note that we are fast approaching our next long weekend, so mark May 20th in your calendars for Victoria Day.
With all this sun, you'll probably want to attend the Barrie Waterfront Festival, which will be taking place at Centennial Park from May 24th - 26th (I know I'll be there!). You can find more details about this event here: https://www.barriewaterfront.ca/
Have you been doing some Spring cleaning? If you're thinking about getting any new furniture to spruce up your home this Spring, the Canadian Furniture Show at Mississauga's International Centre happens on Friday, May 24th from 9am - 6pm. You can find more details here: http://www.canadianfurnitureshow.com/
