The chicken coop isn't the only area that has been getting some sprucing up. Sugarwing's Daddy has been helping me in the yard. It was his idea to move my old bike over to this tree, and I think it was a good one.
There are pink begonias planted in the baskets,but they are still tiny right now. Most of the Spring plants have finished and we are moving on to the summer blooms already, so these begonias should be taking off soon. Of course, in a normal year, I'd be worried about getting a late freeze, but I don't feel one coming on this year.
Seriously? Roses already?
Now, I'm NOT complaining. Just perplexed. And a little bit worried.
What a year. Winter was so mild and Spring so lovely. Will Summer be a scorcher?
And we have had nice, new gravel spread in the courtyards and sidewalks.
Last fall, we took out a few sickly trees. These stumps never got hauled off, so I turned them into planter holders. I've planted lots of viney things in these whiskey barrels, so I hope to see trailing vines cover up most of the stumps in a couple of months. (the barrels are from the Home Depot and they get them from the Jack Daniels factory. When I bought them, I could still smell the whiskey!)
How is Spring where you are at? Is it weirdly wonderful there too?
I heard on NPR the other day that over 7000 temperature records have been broken for the Midwest in March and so far in April!
