It is usually said that “April showers bring May flowers”. I don’t know how true that is in every area, but one thing that is certain is that May flowers are a welcome sight! Those of us winter weary are glad to see an abundance of color once again. The greenhouses and nurseries are brimming with colorful blooms, hanging baskets, bedding and vegetable plants. I know it makes me excited to get planting even though I know it can be risky here in the northeast. Even with the longer and warmer days, there is always the chance of a frost and the general rule is to not plant until after Memorial Day. But, I can’t resist and plant anyway. Look for updates on my little brood of hens, some great warm weather recipes and other spring ideas. Enjoy this last of the spring months as we are gently escorted into summer!
