What a long strange spring this has been, and....

Spring just lingered forever,
which we should be grateful
that it has not been blistering hot until recently.

The broccoli and Brussels sprouts we planted late
went out in the garden,
sink or swim, I bid them luck.

Today, sweat pouring off my forehead until I stop and cool off,
with zero cal lemonade, chocolate and then cold water,
then by running cool water over my wrists and inner elbows.

I am organizing photos for the next Lake Champlain Bridge update.
It was a beautiful day today
and the ferry hustled,
a few more people on board,
concrete trucks,
this ferry will cease soon.

Meanwhile,
will plant seeds tomorrow-last planting of the year.

Difficult long spring.

  1. It's been cool here, I'm wearing a sweatshirt. But down the highway my mother and crew are slightly warm. It's because I live in the woods.

    I am glad I don't have to worry too much about the heat as I have no funds for AC!

  2. I agree with you, it's been a bit of a wild one going from one extreme to the other!

  3. I long for cold weather and rain !

    And yes, this has been probably the strangest spring/summer in my whole life.
    Please have a good Tuesday.
