Spummer

SAM_0819Hey It’s Spri..uh no ..it’s Summ..Nope since it is May it must be Sprummer!

We seem to have bypassed actual spring, which is much better than last year when we had a false early spring, and the buds all responded to warm temperatures just to be hit with more winter that killed off a huge percentage of our crops and flowers. I sadly mourned (I know how can one mourn unsadly?) the particular loss of our magnolias. So close to bloom then frozen and dead, never to recover, at least in that year.
So today I am happy to change that wintery header of mine to our beautiful magnolias – alive and just shouting life and color. It seemed to be a long long winter although it was not harsh. Perhaps due to the false spring. We felt cheated somehow.

It was fun to get the patio ready first with the power wash that cleansed the soul of grit and dirt as well as fences and patios.

      Here you are going into fall and winter Judith but I can’t think of a single word that would do. I am so happy we are having a half decent summer so far that I forget that half the world is on the other side of summer. I too have a lot of catching up to do. Not sure where my mind is. This is Mother’s Day weekend in Canada so I am wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day also.

        Mothers’ Day here today and the sun is shining. But as a family we don’t celebrate Mothers or Fathers day – I thin it is a great con on the people to spend, spend, spend!

    I love to power wash! If G2 turns the wand behind him on his bicycle he may be propelled down the road. I love that picture!
