You say SPRING?
Well here in the Midwest as both Wendy and I find ourselves living in, the definition of that term can be fooling to say the LEAST!
Over the last several days we have been experiencing 80 plus degree days, in fact on Thursday we broke a record and it reached EIGHTY THREE DEGREES,some 25 degrees above normal for this time of year,go figure that!
Tonite they are predicting a mixture of snow and rain. Well, Midwest living I guess it should not suprise me.
As I have gotten older these swings in temps.kind of rattle my bones.
Mother Nature lures me into shorts and gardening tasks and golf and then BOOM, she lets me have it, will I NEVER learn of her cunning ways?
I was VERY tempted to purchase some plantings for the summer season, BUT had second thoughts when I heard of the forecast for most of the coming week....UGH!
I normally start purchasing my summer plantings around the first of May. in this part of the country they suggest to wait until Mothers day, I CAN NEVER WAIT and have been burned by"Mother" a number of times. Of course IF I wait oftentimes the selections are diminished.
Oh well, just thought that I would share some ramblings of what spring has in store for us here in the Midwest. SPRING, STILL my favorite time of year for new beginnings and the anticipation of a summer of color, natures palette!
