Some of the FIRST blooms of the season are the most exciting ones to me.
I try to enjoy them in spite of the fact that the weeds are multiplying
faster and farther than I remember them doing other years.
Our weather overall has seemed very cool and very wet
which no doubt contributes to their abundance.
Last night, my Main Gardener and I sat and read for a short while.
The storm clouds were moving toward us, and when the wind
started to pick up, we resumed our reading inside.
