Orange Poppies

10" X 13"

Arches 140#CP

 

Temps today are supposed to reach 82F! Already the mosquitoes have found my skin, the weeds are having a hayday, and spring fever has infected everyone! It's so challenging to sit at a computer all day, needed as it may be, while the sun, heat and scent of newly blooming viburnum and tea olives scent the air with intoxicating fragrances that beckon one to dream!

 

Whether the calendar proclaims the new season or Pauxitauny Phil hides his tail for being wrong about winter (at least for North Carolina) -- Spring has arrived!

 

Today our college celebrates 'Spring Fling' - the weather cooperating beautifully. I've several talks to give and meetings to make, so there won't be much 'flinging' for me today.

 

But tomorrow -- we'll be outdoors planting - another day of promised high temperatures - and a day of gardening will be something to celebrate!

 

Have a great one!
