After all, we've had such a nice seasonably warm month so far, an earlier-than-usual last frost (May 14th) and then mildness all around.
This week really went south, though. The wind has been relentless from the north, the skies have been gloomy, daytimes temps on several days never got out of the 40s and the nights - well, the thermometer this morning says it all. I've been wearing my heavy clothes, eating hot soup and listening to the furnace run. *sheesh*
I brought in the plants Tuesday evening and didn't even take them out again until yesterday (Friday) just so I could water them.
Had to bring them in again last night. It's been so freaking COLD! I barely went outside this week except to mow the grass and that was no picnic in that wind. I did get juuust a bit of a project done, (and a post about a previous one) but I sure didn't enjoy it. (Saturday, however, I had fun - garden project.)
Should be upper 60s here today with 40s tonight. I think I'll take the kids out today but bring them in again tonight. After that the forecasts look better for full-time outside again.
Hopefully we'll get some of the rains they promised this weekend. I look forward to planting out these babies soon.
