Our couple of days of Spring happened so fast that I didn't get the chance to put my pots out, let alone get them filled with fresh dirt and new posies of any kind. So, I got to do that when the temperatures were in the mid to upper 80's, low and upper (96F) 90's. I got some rather great deals on the flowers though by waiting a bit. These high temps and very high winds we have been having is taking it's toll on some of them, but the front of my house looks pretty nice. What do you think? Look at the size of those blooms!
I can't keep the bird feeders filled for some reason...must be too many birds coming to feast! I still have a couple of squirrels that come to feed on the acorns, but the bunny rabbits haven't been around with all the cats in the area. I think the opossum in the back has quit coming too, must be because it is so hot so quickly.
I have been watering the grass and put a soak-er hose around the foundation of the house because of the winds and the dryness, but can only water for 1 hour on Wednesdays and Saturdays and not between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. We are on stage 1 water rationing as we are 8 inches below normal rainfall for this year already and were at a deficit from the previous year. Boats can't get into our lakes because they are down so drastically. We are under high fire danger warnings as well, but....we are supposed to get some rain (maybe up to 1/2 inch) tomorrow....just hoping it doesn't pass us by this time like it has lately! I sure feel for all those whose homes have been destroyed by the fires in Guthrie, Oklahoma this past week.
Well, enough for today, got things to get accomplished and cannot do them if my behind is sitting in front of this computer...ROFL! Will chat more with y'all a little later, keep on making those marvelous memories to share with us. Hugs, Mat
