Another Cold Front

Two days of rain and wind and now the cooler weather behind the front.  This morning it was 41 degrees and tonight it is to be in the 30’s, how low into the 30’s it will be only time will tell.  I hope the mountain elevation will protect us from a frost.  The peach trees are now setting their fruit, the pear trees are in bloom with the Moon Glow having many and the Barlett only one cluster.  Photo on 4-4-15 at 5.45 PM

This is the crab apple and as you can see it is in full bloom.  We should have a lot to make crab apple jelly this year.  The Wine Sap apple tree has several buds and should open soon then we can tell if we will have apples this year for the first time.  I don’t see any on the Golden Delicious and the cherry tree has some but we have only one tree so don’t get any cherries.

The daffodils are all gone and now the few tulips I have are in bloom.Photo on 4-4-15 at 5.47 PM

There are not many but they are pretty anyways.  I still have some weeding to do in the hosta bed.  The violets are coming up fast now.  Usually I would say violets are pretty but in my flower gardens they chock out the other flowers.  I once had a strawberry bed but the violets killed all the strawberries.  Now I let the violets grow only in the grove on driveway.Photo on 4-4-15 at 5.46 PM

These are a cluster just outside the tower boxes.  They are pretty but you can see they are very invasive, these are growing in the rocks of the driveway.

Tomorrow is Easter and Joe and family are coming up and I am all ready with the Easter Bunny for the Easter egg hunt.  It is also Laura’s birthday so I made a big Boston cream pie for her for her birthday cake.  Have a Happy Easter everyone!!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
