does not mean it's warm here. I spent Sunday, June 1st, wearing a long sleeved T-shirt and heavy sweatshirt while at work.
It also does not mean we're out of the rainy season. I spent the day Tuesday, June 3rd, in rain gear while unloading trucks and hustling the delicate flowers inside to avoid being crushed by the heavy drops.
At home, the delicate flowers are in the ground, not pots, and so cannot be moved. So today, our verbascum is not a "perky" lass like she was the other day. Poor dear!
One of my customers asked me if the pepper and tomato plants came with jackets or sweaters this year. I laughed and said no, but that's a great idea! They sure need them this year.
"Hey lady, I'm a heat lover and I'm C-O-L-D!"
"Hey thanks! I'm warmer now. I look like a freakin' elf, but I'm warmer now."
