This past weekend was one of beautiful spring-like weather,and temperatures in the high 70’s.Much was accomplished here at TheGreatWall.
The butterfly garden was finished;onions and carrots were planted as edging in the flower beds,mulch spread around.
And,lo and behold,winter returned!A
cool cold front came through yesterday,and this morning the temperature was 28 degrees!
Only the most delicate of plants were brought up to the patio(YardBoy wasn’t too happy about having to help,but he begrudgingly came to the rescue).The rest were left to fend for themselves.
Early this AM,I was out(in my pj’s,no less),checking on everything.Thankfully,there was no freeze or frost,sooo,it looks like we made it through ok.
But hasn’t this weather gone on long enough?Now,I’m not saying I’m ready for the heat and humidity of summer.By no means am I ready for that!But it would be nice if spring would hang around for awhile.
The poor plants are so confused.Should I grow or shouldn’t I?
A bonus from this weird weather is we have robins in our yard.I haven’t seen so many,here,in quite a long time.
Guess they’re confused too.
