**SENTENCE COMBINATION, May 16th, 2013**



Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important skill in writing. There are many ways to do this--many possible bonus points! Try to combine the following three sentences into just one sentence.

1.      The celebration of Victoria Day is associated with the arrival of summer.
2.      In many parts of Canada, it is still spring as the trees are just beginning to leaf out.
3.      This weekend, avid gardeners flock to greenhouses to buy bedding plants for their gardens to ensure a good start on summer.

Although it is still spring and the trees are just beginning to leaf out, this Victoria Day long weekend in Canada is associated with the arrival of summer; when avid gardeners flock to greenhouses to buy bedding plants for their gardens to ensure a good start to the season.
