Time Flies

I can't believe how the time flies past anymore! I have had a new experience lately. Had my first visit to the Kahneeta Hot Springs with a good friend. Enjoyed the trip and would love to go again. The drive was lovely with everything greening up since it's Spring.

Have started a campaign against the weed in the yard and have freed a long border from the crabgrass. And have re-planted the glads that were there. Need to replace some of the plants that used to be there. Chrysanthemums, lupines, painted yarrow and lilies to name a few.

Planted the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and onions about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks ago. They looked so good this morning. The tomatoes had blossoms and green tomatoes from small to good sized. Peppers were twice as tall and starting to blossom. The lemon cukes had doubled in size and one of them was blooming also and almost a dozen red onions were up. we had a good thunderstorm with hail and rain. Our house was in the area that was hit the hardest. We received about four inches of hail. It hailed for over twenty minutes. It tore the flowers off of the irises and ripped and shredded foliage. My tomatoes have enough of their leaves to survive if they don't/aren't frozen. The cukes, same story. The peppers are shredded.
