SPRING’S TULIPS … ENJOY THEM WHILE YOU CAN!
Well, the weather forecasts for Sunday through Thursday are really rather dire! Locally, they say we can expect strong thunder storms with anywhere from one to three inches of rain over the five-day time period. There’s also the potential for hail, high winds and potential tornadoes. And the storm potential runs from the mid-west to the east coast. So does anyone want to dispute the fact that are weather patterns are rapidly and repeatedly changing?
SPRING TULIPS — ENJOY THEM!
I couldn’t take any pictures of my daffodils because they haven’t started blooming yet. Well, one blossom did open up but Mlle. Renee smooshed it chasing a pair of grackles out of the yard. She can not abide the grackles ever since the started dive bombing her a couple of years back every time she came out into the yard to do her business. She has no complaint about sparrows, robins, cardinals or squirrels, and they share the yard peacefully. She’s not too fond of rabbits either because they hop … or cats and snakes because they slink around in the shadows. The only beasties she has ever hunted are the snakes. I’m not so fond of them either. The only place I never visit at the zoo is the reptile house.
Alright, so she doesn’t like dragons either. Guess she thought it was some kind of a snake. Do you think she might be St. George in canine form?
I tried to get my yew hedges in shape yesterday afternoon, but the invasive honeysuckle vines that are trying to claim them as their own were too much for me. So I got my Kindle and sat in the shade of the cedar trees in the back yard and enjoyed the lawn I wore myself out mowing on Thursday. I guess you just have to enjoy sunny skies and warm breezes while you can.
