Bean planting day. Which theoretically
means there will be no frost until late October. And if there is I
will go to the bank, borrow sufficient to cover the Vegetable Garden
with what they call "Indoor, Out Door" carpeting. And on this
"Indoor, Out Door" carpeting, I will arrange a collection of "Gnomic"
figurines, and some will be holding fishing rods other's will be engaged
in appalling acts of depravity.
somewhat dramatic oath you might think, but that's how
confident I feel. Of course the last time I was this
confident, a late frost blighted the Iris and nut trees. It
killed an Apricot, caused havoc in the community of
Bluebirds who lost their broods, and I had to spend a couple
of weeks avoiding the accusing glare of Tree Swallows
shivering on the electric line.
