Your temperature whiplash seems more extreme than ours but we continue to experience a roller-coaster too. I'm glad you found some solace in flowers from your garden. Fingers crossed for more stability soon.

This seems to be the theme this year. Glad you found enough for a beautiful little vase.

Yes, I feel like we got cheated out of spring. April 18th: a huge dump of wet snow. May 12th: 89°F. Yes, that's summer weather, which we've had for the past 3 days. I'd like more than 3 weeks of spring!

KATHY — I feel like my whole garden has popped up in the last few days. No time to enjoy any specific plant. And I could not plant special orders because it was too cold.We hit 90 or above every day but one in the last 5 days.

To top it all off, I tipped over an almost 6 foot stone lantern in the garden this morning on top of lilies and other bulbs that were all up a foot or more. We have to see if we can get a neighbor to help us set it back up. It comes apart in 5 pieces. I've worked around that lantern for 20 years and never had such a thing happen — especially not when I was counting on those flowers for the tour.
