I've seen that one before - always a good one to share, NormaM!

I have to look it up each time, though. 10 degrees Celsius XD

And yeah, every time I see it I remind myself I'm being considerate of the pollinators; not that I'm too busy/tired/lazy to do it earlier :admin:

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

^^^ Very timely post. I picked a ball out of the front garden yesterday and was just thinking this front needs some clipping, raking and pruning.

Now I don't have to do it for another month. :130: Thanks eh.

Headed out to see how far down the soil is thawed. I have garlic dug out from last year anxiously sprouting greens and roots. May have to plant it today or sometime in my four days off in a row. :biggrin:

Aawhhh yes my younger friend, you are starting the tricks of the trade of being a good husband.

You too will eventually learn that the PERFECT, late Spring day is when........

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the kids are blowing bubbles with the $.99 bubble wand from Walmart that you just gave them or they are washing your truck in exchange for a few bucks so that they can go buy their own.

The wife is doing the laundry because, you have been forbidden to do so ever since you tried to wash jeans, bras, dirty running shoes, something called lingering, and the pillows in one load with cold water (I know, you were just trying to reduce your gas/electric bill and save the planet).

You just got the camping chairs out of storage but they need to be pre-stretched before future guests arrive in mid July and the beer is cold.

The lawnmower won't start and you are awaiting for the parts to arrive by FedEx (ground, of course, just doing your part to reduce household costs).

You have pre-ordered pizza from Dominos WITH delivery, can't be too careful these days, and don't want to expose yourself to the COVID accidentally during a pick-up order. "It's just doesn't warrant the risk to expose the rest of the family.

You should be proud of what you have accomplished today, enjoy it, Father's Day is coming up soon, right?

I have no need for a garden or I'd do one... I would plant all kinds of weird stuff
Wouldn't mind a Moon garden but I think it is too shady.
Yea, I can stall the spring cleanup.. just in case I have bees or something cute wintering still

Those are not bees.
What temperature is too cold for bees?
How cold is too cold for bees? Honey bees become sluggish once the temperature drops below 55 degrees F . Bees will die of hypothermia if their body temp falls to 45 degrees F.

bees sounds better than bugs. Maybe I can sucker someone in to planting me a Moon garden
* waits patiently for show of hands*
I do not like digging in the soil ( worms) but I would love one, simply freaking love one
come on, some apt dweller must want to have the fun! I'll pay for the plants, and watering a breeze we have irrigation
but I want a fancy azz show stopping one. TIA

Send an address and when I get a worm from the garden, I'll mail you one. :130:
