Save the peaches!

It's almost May. It's also 27 degrees outside and there is a light covering of snow on the ground. That whump-whump-whump I hear is the windmills in the orchard across the street trying with all their might to circulate the air and hopefully save this year's crop of peaches.

I sure hope it works. Lachlan is really looking forward to tasting the first of many world-famous Palisade peaches this summer.

I also hope that my ten new Corsican violets are as hardy as they're supposed to be...

  1. Oh yikes, history is repeating itself, eh? Hope they will be okay - it does look beautiful though. Warming up to 70 here today after a week or so of sticky, summer weather. We're all mixed up!

  2. Indeed! Last year's frost was in early May, and I had thought that we'd be in the clear this year seeing how we've had such great weather lately. Boy was I wrong. At least I haven't planted any of my vegetables yet! :)
