Do you get warm summers? Like 80+ degrees? I live in mass and it isn't uncommon to snow in April but I think I would cry if it snowed in May! It has been a cold spring though. We had a frost a couple if nights last week. Thankfully we have had nice weather the last 2 days!

Not usually 80's, but 60's and 70's. last 2 summers have been awful, wet and cold, hoping for a better one this year.

That's crazy! I hate the cold! I live in New Hampshire and I think our winters are bad enough. I would move for sure!

Well, it stopped snowing. The sun is out. The nights are still dipping below freezing. Even with a heater running in my greenhouse last night, it still dipped to 27. I hope my plants make it. They look good right now. Fingers crossed!

Sorry to rub salt in the wound.....but we were warm and lovely this weekend. Thunderstorms were predicted every day, but never came. Instead I got my flowers planted, the flower bed weeded, the new baby comfrey planted, some babies re-potted. Hubbie did mowing and we started cleaning up the pine needles from the patio so we can have dinner outside again. It was a lovely weekend.

I'm working on the garden fence so the hot wire can go up this weekend and the main season planting can begin!!!

Finally warming up. Most all of the snow is gone. The forecast looks good all week. Took the babies out for some fresh air today. Back in the garage for bed. It's still on the 30's at night. Baby steps thus year....

It was 87 here in Mass. I must say being at the beginning of my ninth month of pregnancy I would happily take the snow! Thunderstorms are coming in and thankfully dropping the temp!
