Busy with stuff. The Mahaleb cherry bloomed at the west end of downtown Truckee. The Sargent crabapple bloomed at the east end, in front of BofA. The Lupine in front of the Villager started to go off. The lilac blooms downtown are severely abbreviated... NO DOUBT a result of the 15° nights we endured a few weeks back. It's been a BRUTAL spring...endless snows...deep and enduring frosty nights...rain...wind..clouds...and I woke last week to the seventh plague of hail... thank goodness that it was very minimal and brief... I keep waiting for the locusts... I know, "don't say that".
At least the weather has been good for hiking and gardening, very mild. We finally put out another e-mail, I'd hope more people would sign-up but at least we have 800 followers. If you know anyone who might be interested, send them the website page and signing up for the occasional e-mails is easy in the upper right-hand side.
Saturday is our second annual Free planting day, we skipped last year but we're on the calendar from now on.:
