Summer has finally arrived. It is going to be in the 80's and 90's all week. That is welcome news to those of us who don't really enjoy the snow! It has been a cool spring, but there is a benefit- Utah is beautiful and green. Quite possibly the greenest I have seen over the past 16 years of living here. That probably means we will have a lot of fires later in the summer, but I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.
The weird thing is that I haven't planted any flowers this year. Not one. I usually get flower baskets and seedlings for Mother's Day, but it was so darn cold that Ed didn't buy any. I think that was wise as some people have planted two or three times! My backyard is a jumble of color with my roses and perennials and the front yard looks awful. I am not pleased with how the landscaping has evolved, but am too lazy to want to do much about it.
We spent the weekend at the cabin where the scrub oaks are gorgeous. We managed to get two sides of the cabin stained a very dark brown that I love!!!! Murphy's Law was at work, but we triumphed. Now we just have to schedule the other two sides. . . Ed had a load of gravel dropped off as well and I cannot believe what a difference that has made in the look of the front of the cabin. I will post photos when we are all done. Right now we still have two sides and a mountain of gravel to deal with.
