I love springtime. Blossoms. Green-up.   20150409_113753 Planting annuals in the flower beds and seeds in the vegetable garden.  20150409_113914

But the season is fickle. Just as I dig into the drawers and the back of the closet for shorts and T-shirts, the weather forecasters warn us that a hail storm is coming. Oh no! I put the indoor plants out on the patio. I’ll have to drag them back in. Yikes! Practically the whole neighborhood had to have roofs replaced just two years ago because of hail damage. It can’t happen again so soon. Jeez! The blossoms on the trees and bushes will be knocked off. We might not have apples or peaches this year.

Well, it’s all part of living here. Besides, the hail storm might pass us by or become sleet or even rain by the time it gets here. We need the moisture. Hail to springtime!20150409_113829
