How are things in your neck of the woods? Here, we are experiencing our warmest Spring ever! At least, that's what Jerry Hodak our local weatherman says. Just last week when coming out of the Mart, Tomer said " Man, this feels like July not May!" He was right...Jerry said so.
One good thing about it, is our flowers and vegetables are all in the ground. And with this heat and a fair amount of rain, things are filling in nicely. Things are green and lush!
We, are in the middle of redoing some landscaping out front. Everything, has to do well in shade...Any hints? My Tomer is a lover of trees. Has been since a boy, when his Uncle Willy, instilled the love of planting in him. So, that means our front yard is pure shade, this time of year. The huge Maple Trees have taken over and the shrubs and Weeping Cherry tree are looking plumb pitiful. Having no sun, has surely stunted their growth. But, as Tomer always says the trees insulate our home. And I have to agree, because on these hot days our A/C doesn't come on until way late in the morning.
Tomer, is a man of purpose...Always has a plan, a list or both. He, knows why he does everything! He, doesn't understand winging it, spur of the moment and never flies by the seat of his pants. Nope, it's 1...2...3...or...A...B...C. (sounds like a Jackson 5 song) At the moment he is...1. mowing, so that he can...2. fertilize, because it is...3. going to rain. Don't worry, he uses no chemicals in our yard. It's Cock-a-doodle-do! Yes, folks that is the name of it. We, have a storm drain close by and he is mindful that all run off, flows to the river.
Well, I'd best quit my rambling, finish my coffee and enjoy the back porch swing a bit. The rains headed our way will keep me inside tomorrow. Tomer's plans are right on schedule.
