April is an interesting month, although not always in a good way. You know how April showers bring May flowers? Well, we’ve had practically no rain at all this month. I’m still hoping for May flowers, however.
We had summer-like temperatures for most of last week. We didn’t use the air-conditioner, but we did have the house open and fans running. So you can imagine our shock and surprise when we got home from running some errands on Saturday afternoon to discover that a frost advisory had been issued for the Plateau. We moved our container roses into the garage just to be on the safe side. Fortunately we didn’t have any frost and so we moved them back out yesterday.
Don’t get me wrong — I’m not complaining. We’ve had beautiful weather and beautiful flowers. Our pink dogwood tree (above) is about as pretty as it has been since we moved here.
I am finding, however, that I must be slowing down with old age as it seems to take me longer and longer to do everything that needs to be done outside. So If these postings become a little more sporadic than they’ve been in the past, rest assured that it is because the weather has been good and I have been working outside. I haven’t forgotten about you and will endeavor to keep up as best as I can.
