Slowly spring is arriving. Last Saturday morning, it snowed..SNOW on the 16Th of May...it melted as it hit the ground. It collected on the grill and the lawn swing. Last week a half a mile from here it hailed until the ground was white, Far Guy and I saw the dark cloud.. we got wind and a few sprinkles but no hail here. Every day the wind howls, like a mad banshee, I have never encountered such a windy spring. So far we have only had two or three really nice days. It has been freezing quite regularly at night. My Lupines are up and were nipped quite severely the other night. They showed me the under sides of their leaves in protest. I am hoping they don't croak. I have to search very hard for small signs that warmer weather is coming. The Burr Oaks are always so slow. I love them, but why couldn't they be faster.
