The leaves have finally made it out and the grass is growing, but flowers are rare to see, if you don't count a few trees starting to bloom. The forsythia is still in full bloom and that is unusual as well.
While forest fires are already raging out west, we got it soggy enough that a guy could lose his shoes in the mud. The forest trail I used to walk with Dixie requires rubber boots if wet feet is not what you want.
One day we took advantage of the drizzly day and planted a row of small spruce trees along the road. We want these to grow up to make a spruce hedge. I will make sure they are not getting any higher than 5-6ft. It will one day help to brake the wind coming off the bay.
Due to the wet ground they are all looking pretty good.
We planted some other trees behind the house as well.
I haven't introduced you to our new red firetruck. Well, it is fiery red and 14yrs. old. I bought the GMC Halfton for 1000 Bucks off a lady on the mainland. It'll cost another $1000 to fix it up, but the ting is still looking pretty decent for its age. It's a 2-wheel drive only, but that's all we need for our various around-the-island tasks.
Bea goes gardening with it and I am hauling new firewood for the next winter. I am aware of that we have an awfully large vehicle park now, but we use all 4 of them.
