don’t misunderstand me—I don’t have a problem with the flower, except . . . well, you know, here I was, expecting to see tall grasses and shrubs, buffaloes and bison, home on the range, and all that. I was hoping to show my son a real manly sort of weekend, but here was this fuzzy lavender tulip! It was just so . . . delicate!”

What does "weekend" mean in this paragraph?
It's definitely not " from Friday to Sunday."
Is it a kind of flower or something?
Thanks in advance~

    I'm afraid it is just a plain and ordinary meaning of weekend, jnzovy. I assume dad has taken his son to the great outdoors to show him some of the features of untamed nature but found a fairly domesticated environment instead.
