As you can see from the groovy graphic above, warmer days are on the way! How does 70's on Saturday sound? Yes, even as I write this, it is feeling quite like spring in the sun. The signs of the season are all around us--
yellow forsythia blooming
new green leaves
red shoots of the peonies
buds on the branches
baseball on the radio
hockey playoffs begin
sunflower seeds and basil seeds on sale at Walgreens
also summer shoes
asparagus in the produce section
Soon, the carpenters will be everywhere. There will be the sounds of hammering. There will be roofers and housepainters.
People will do more things outside. The short and oh so sweet al fresco season begins. You can read more about it here.
The last frost dates for this area are in May, but the really cautious may wait until Memorial Day weekend to plant those tomatoes.
And keep a sweater or a hoodie around, because it's chilly in the shade, and temperatures can be 10-20 degrees cooler by the lake...
