Well lets get on with summer! We had brats on the grill, baked beans and raspberries for supper last night. I wore my heavy fleece lined sweatshirt at work..it was not much above 55 degrees F in the museum. I almost got my snow boots out of the closet and my parka is still there too.
Far Guy’s Lilac is about to bloom. Chance is sitting in the old sandy parking lot, if it rains some more the weeds will take over that area and it will be greener by fall.
It was a hard winter for the Lupines. Without much snow cover many of them succumbed to the frost heaves. Last year I had many Lupines. This year I have lots of little seedlings that may bloom later in the summer. These blooms were a nice surprise!
The Oak leaves are expanding nicely after the last rain. Another week and we will have the dense shade that is ten degrees cooler than in town.
Far Guy mowed the lawn twice in May. It almost froze the other morning. We are thankful for the fireplace..it keeps the house warm and cozy.
I am feeling better as long as I get the rest I need. I have had this cold for 23 days now..I think I am over the cough ..the antibiotics must finally be working. My chest wall is no longer inflamed because I can breathe without pain..so things are looking up! :)
