We seem to be getting much of your missing precipitation. It has been an
abnormally cool and wet spring here, including a very soggy Mother's Day
weekend. You are welcome to take at least half of your rain back! At least,
we have avoided the extreme swings in temperature that so often
characterize our spring. No late freeze damage this year; no stunted,
distorted or abortive stalks - amazing! When the iris finally do bloom, it
should be quite a picture.

We always make it a point to warn clerking volunteers about what they may
be forced to overhear after a couple of unfortunate experiences in which
peoples' feelings were deeply injured.

Go get 'em!
