Finally, a day dawns with crisp sunny skies. We have had a few days of dreary weather. The moisture was nice, but it is nice to see the sun again. I don't know if it has been partly cloudy or partly sunny. I'm going with the partly cloudy, since the sun always shines. One of those weather peoples things I have never figured out. We are actually having March weather now. Temps in the 50's and 60's and of course still windy as can be. There is a chance of a light frost tonite, so I will have to make sure I cover my tender parts, I mean plants. Potatoes are coming up now, and so are the weeds. As the plants grow I will mulch to keep the weeds under control. For now it is manual weed control! I am still amazed at how early some of the flowering trees are in bloom. The lilacs are in full bloom and the fragrance is just overwhelming. I can remember when I was younger, lilacs would be in bloom in May. Sometimes even late May. The past few years it has been getting earlier and earlier. Some years even getting nipped by frost. This is about the earliest though. The red bud trees are blooming. This is a couple of weeks earlier than usual. I won't mind it if there is a longer growing season. I just don't want frost in August! I know what some people are attributing it to, but I won't even go there. I may need another prescription from Stephen if I get on that subject!
Speaking of prescriptions, which I really wasn't, the back is doing ok. I have to be careful. Still kind of stiff. One of the causalities of growing older, notice I said older and not old. Just because I could pick up and carry railroad ties when I was younger does not mean I should still do it. The problem is, I can still do it, just not without inflicting serious bodily injury! I guess it is a mind thing. One part of my brain thinks I am still in my younger years. The rest of my brain and my body have yet to convince it of anything different. Growing older is not a bad thing, it is just doing it gracefully, that is the problem.
I would like to pass on a Happy Easter, or Happy Passover.
