Still very cool days and nights. At last the sun came out this afternoon and it crept up to 60°.
Not much has been happening on the farm. I have read a couple of books. I made a new chocolate cake using hot coffee that DH votes as his favorite. It was very moist.
We had a favorite breakfast this morning. I had left over round steak from yesterday's lunch. When that happens....you can count on biscuits with steak gravy for breakfast. One of life's little pleasures.
I finally went out this afternoon and revved up the mower and mowed the east yard.
We need to 'pick up sticks' before I can mow everything.
I also braved the Awakening rose and cut it to the ground. Now I need to dig it up and relocate it....if that doesn't work I am killing it. The limbs get 20 feet long.....it doesn't belong anywhere near human beings! I also think I need to cut my Edward Boucher abelia way down low. It is getting very woody. It really should be moved too, but is much too large.
The wild violets are blooming. I love them.
I believe some were killed over winter. Have you noticed there is always a cat or two in my pictures.....I don't even see them until I get ready to post them.
Strange things are happening with blooming things this year. My Jack Frost brunnera is blooming but not the accompanying tulips......usually they bloom at the same time. Maybe we just need some warm days.
