While I can’t tell you when it started here on Somerset Street Bridge, I can tell you that it seems to be getting bigger and bigger every year! For those of you who don’t know the story behind these locks, check out this Wikipedia page to get all the details. It’s a pretty neat concept.

Made another trip out to Experimental Farm yesterday to show the girlfriends mother the Ornamental Gardens in full bloom.
