An End And A Beginning
Spring has come and gone and somewhat unevenly too. The gap between day and night temperatures was very wide for some time, then a continuously pouring rain for several days. During the 70 to 85 degrees days, the plants shot up, leaves peeking out and flowers budding only to be knocked back by very cold nights. Vegetables, except for the tomatoes and chili peppers, love this kind of weather but the roses had their blooms battered and washed off and their leaves have developed black spots. I’m not really complaining since our house is still standing and our garden remains intact. Mother nature is still kind to us.
Now summer is officially here but the rain continues. In the next five days the prediction is for heavy storms or scattered thunder storms. In the meantime the summer flowers and insects are taking their turn while spring has faded slowly away. This is how spring has unfolded in our garden so far.
