Finally a warm day without rain with wind only beginning in the early afternoon.  Also its official—- Rochester has had greater than 5 inches of rain so far this April.  That is an all time record for the month. I put the froggie rain gauge out on the picnic table perhaps ten days ago and counted just over 5.5 inches here in Greece.

 so today I set out to get some spring projects going.  I planted the cool weather veggy seeds: sugar snap peas, onion sets, beets, radishes, swiss chard and a lettuce blend.

Since I just received my perennial order from Bluestone I put the agastache and astilbe into the back garden. And then:

 I’m planning a compost heap along the northwest side of the house so I transplanted a white climbing rose to the right of the shed doors and fiddled around with transplanting rose campion and Echinacea to clear a path thru the gate to the HEAP.  All this in 75 degree temps with high HUMIDITY.

Hey I certainly cannot complain.  My heart goes out to the folks in Arkansas etc. They are losing homes and lives. Prayers for all.

Sorry there’s no eye candy here——just ran out or energy—–
