June.....really!? Where is spring? June 2, 2013
Anyway, with all the rain this week, it is not conducive to getting anything done in the yard. It is just saturated! Plus, yesterday it started out in the low 50s and dropped to 40 degrees......where it still is this morning. At least the sun is shining between all the clouds today. Usually, Memorial weekend is the time to start planting the gardens. Not this year. I think everything would sit there and rot. Then, of course, when we do get a bit of sunshine and 70 with high humidity........we aren't used to it and it feels so hot you just want to sit out there and enjoy the fact we have some sunshine.
Toby and I have had our little adventures all week, rain or not. It is drier on the shore....relatively.....and there aren't ticks on the Lake Superior shores either. Right now....ticks are bad! My tick jar on the counter is filling. If we go in the woods.......we get ticks. Picking Toby is just about a full time job. Frontline or Advantix or whatever.......doesn't stop the ticks from getting on him in the first place. They will still try to attach most of the time. I don't want any flare ups in his Lyme disease.....for sure. So, I am vigilant.
Spring flowers and cherry blossoms are finally out. It is fun to see some of spring arriving anyway.
Maybe the weather will soon moderate too......we can hope.
