“April showers, bring May flowers”. We are having an extraordinary years for Spring garden color this year. Ample rain, alternating with 70F to 80F days certainly turns the Appalachian Mountains into a hot-house. Or, as I said to the Mrs. at the end of the day yesterday, “Nice August day, huh?” referring the 85F+ temperatures with 95% humidity and thunder showers earlier in the day and threatening (I grilled dinner at lunch time, anticipating the usual downpour just about the time I would light the grill for dinner). April is just about gone. One of my regular readers, Cindy, asked about seeing some of the flowers in the garden. Here’s her Spring bouquet. Cheers from our hollow to yours.
Above are daffodils, guarded by Belle. Below are: shooting star, marsh marigolds, primroses and candytuft, solomon’s seal, and trillium (red and white).
