A peek into the mind of a gardener on the first
warm hot day of spring.
Gosh it’s hot suddenly I didn’t notice that the magnolia was budded out like that is that early or is that on time since when does grass grow that fast I really should have mowed the lawn yesterday but who knew it could grow that fast I had forgotten and oh my goodness that henbit is flowering I better pull it before it sets seed hey are those dandelions in the lawn and what happened to all my crocus blooms they are gone already the forsythia is blooming isn’t there something I’m supposed to do when the forsythia bloom I really should cut back those spireas so they’ll bush up nice and it might help them recover from the drought geez it is getting kind of dry out here I should water all those violas I planted around the garden hold on violas I’m coming with some water I wonder if those bags of mulch will move themselves from the back patio to the front where I edged the beds maybe I should call someone to edge the backyard beds there are a lot more back there but I sure am glad I finally sowed seeds for lettuce and radishes I wonder if we’ll have more frost maybe this will be the year when we have the earliest last frost ever if I knew it was I could plant out the tomatoes except they are still just little seedlings right now this spring seems to be going by awfully fast wow those pink grape hyacinths sure are pretty.
I wish spring wasn’t going by so fast it seemed so slow at first but that must have been some illusion because it is going to fast now there is a lot I wanted to do and oh my is it hot out here or what?
And that was a peek into the mind of a gardener…
