Back in the garden's writing room...for the moment.

It is finally starting to be nice enough to do my work outside in the mornings in the garden writing room:

 Today the high is supposed to be in the mid-90s. On Thursday they are calling for freezing rain and snow...for one day. Then it is back in the 70s on Friday. Yeah. Try to figure out a planting schedule around that.

I just felt compelled to comment on the weirdness of it all. I'm going back to work now, before it gets too cold to do so. Or maybe I mean too hot. Oh hell, I don't know.

  1. It has indeed been weird. Saturday an unpredicted thunderstorm dropped almost 5 inches of rain on us. Today it's 85 at 11:00 AM & the humidity is fierce. This weekend we could see low's in the 40s. Just when you think it's safe to put your jackets/coats in the storage closet ...

    1. It makes me worried about summer. But then again, I always worry about summer...

  2. The crazy weather is present up north as well. We have set records for snowfall in April, have had a string of days in the 60's (away from the Lake) and now have a threat of snow again, with a long range forecast that calls for 70's.

    Despite all of that my perennials are emerging. Unfortunately the deer and rabbits seems to be mowing them down as fast as they appear.

    Looking forward to when it is warm enough to hang out on the porch/in the yard.

    1. I think your crazy cold fronts are probably colder than our crazy cold fronts! We probably get more dust with ours, though. ;-)

      I am looking forward to the warm weather, too, though not the hot summer...

      BTW, I am knitting!

  3. Possibly, though I have noted Lubbock being as cold, or colder, then Duluth on occasion.

    Yes - you get more dust!

    Right now it is damp; combined with cold. My least favorite combination. There is a threat of snow, a lot just south of here. Hoping it misses us as we still have plenty left on the ground.

    Last summer was a warm one here. Living in a climate that is traditionally cool we are ill-prepared for heat (aka no air conditioning or central air).

    Knitting - when will you show off a project?!?

  4. This is why Lubbock won the "Toughest Weather City in America" contest! :-D

    I worry about those warmer summers up north (and down here, too). Things are changing, for sure.

    As for knitting, I'll message you on FB.
