Propelled into Motion—-Thursday, April 19, 2018

I checked the pears…gone.  Most of them anyway. Once more we lost the apricots and the pears.  My lilacs are starting to bud so I hope the temperatures stay up and I can have lilac blooms.  It’s been YEARS since I’ve had any lilac blooms.

The Apple trees are starting to bloom and I noticed buds on the prune and wild plum trees.  Everything is propelling themselves into spring…turning their little hearts toward sun and warmth.

I sure hope it starts to warm up and stay that way.

The clouds came in from the west yesterday—leaving patches of blue sky and warm sun, but completely filling the air from north, south, east, and west over night.

A swoosh of cold air has arrived, although the weather people say we will warm up to 77* today, then drop down to 59* tomorrow with huge winds starting this afternoon.

Which propels me forward for Terry and I are taking a trailer of old metal up to Montrose today and we must load it first! 🙂

So off I go to help gather old engine blocks, scrap metal, and other detritus accumulating here and there.

Have a good one!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. This has been a weird year for weather all over the country. I hope some of your lilac blossoms will survive. I remember the lilacs we had at our home when I was a child. Lilacs always bring back wonderful memories.


  2. Sorry about your fruit trees, Linda. It has been so cold here that our pear trees are still sleeping. Hopefully the lilacs will be OK….I love them so. Frustrating, isn’t it?
