Today it is 46 and raining. Last Wednesday it was 91 and dry. You have to love the New England weather. We gardeners are not happy that Memorial day observances are rather chilly and wet, but we are thrilled to have the rain to help ease the drought conditions. It has been a busy few weeks. The bluebirds fledged a couple of days ago.. we saw four but there may have been more. The wrens are building everywhere and momma robin has laid some beautiful blue eggs in a cedar tree right outside our breakfast table window. Hummingbirds are regular visitors to the feeder and orioles are slurping up the grape jelly and oranges. We have had other visitors too: deer in the meadow, rabbits, turkeys, a huge milk snake and raccoons. (They left their footprints in the pollen on the front porch). Ready for some flowers?
Happy Memorial Day. We will never forget those who served
