The Return of Winter—-Thursday, May 18, 2017

We went from summer-like weather

To radically dropping temperatures and snow!

Wet and cold.

Today is a continuation of yesterday, then by tomorrow this winter storm will gradually move out to replaced with much warmer weather by Sunday.

Sure is a bad deal.

Our hope is the crops make it through…the hay was just starting to bloom, the corn up, my garden and flowers all planted….

Only time will tell.

Reaping Rewards

August is the lushest month so far, with September coming soon.  Evening temperatures as dipping down into the low 50’s and the day’s climbing into the high 80s and early 90s, making everything say: “Let’s produce for it might freeze soon”. 

As humans we get to reap the reward of the plants need to reproduce and therefore save the next generation.  The Super-Nova Brugmansia plant has over 65 blooms; I’ve never seen so many on one plant before.
