Interminable waiting. En attendant temps beau, you could say. It's still too chilly to set seedlings out in the garden plots. Temperatures are well below normal for mid-May. Oh well, it certainly is green everywhere. Here's Callie on our walk yesterday afternoon.
Flowers are plentiful, as are birds and bees. Between the cuckooing of the coucou birds and the loud kwee-kwee-kwee-kweeing of the green woodpeckers, there's no need for an alarm clock. Bees and other bugs buzz all around.
Off in the distance, and sometimes closer by, we can hear the purring of tractor engines. As the vines start to green up, the manual labor of pruning is done and the mechanized work of plowing, fertilizing, treating, and trimming has begun.
It's another gray morning. The muted light is pretty against the green backdrop, but what wouldn't we give for a few more sunny, warm days?
