The weather seems strange to me right now…. you know not hot or cold but both in one day… 25 degrees at night and almost 70 during the day. I have to change clothes at about 11 am each day. My allergies are acting up and I’m pretty sure its the Bradford pears. Every year when they bloom I get the headache from you know where.
Its a small price to pay for their beauty, the flowers are starting to bloom and I always enjoy being outside during the spring afternoons . This morning I drove by the nursery looking at the flowers & as I rolled by ever so slowly in my car knowing its still too cold to think about planting I let out a sigh. The promise of spring was right there in all that lavish color but not yet I must wait.
First things first, I need to clean out some more closets and also my back porch. During the winter months I let the back deck go and its a bit of a mess, all the flowers pots are stacked up against the fence with dog toys laying wet and moldy on the ground and a pile of leaves I never picked up. The dogs have turned the deck into their private wwf wrestling area. They go out there and sit or lay in the sun waiting for a chance to go out beyond the fence gate and sniff the smells of spring or maybe they just want to check their pee mail.
