RE: Weather

I ran into a lady at a local nursery the other day who was saying there was
no way it would freeze between now and May 15th.  I tried to remind her that
it wasn't safe to gamble with a pricy plant because it had snowed in May a
number of times in the recent past and in June at least once!  She looked at
me like I was crazy.  I gave up.  

I don't think of caution as old age kicking in, just an accumulation of
enough experience to prevent us from doing something we'll regret later.
Everything I've gotten thus far can be moved indoors until May 15 if we get
a cold spell.  I was feeling really bad that I had another month to wait
until one of the brokers I was working with in Colorado reminded me that
their last frost date was much later than mine.  It's all relative.

Well we have at least a month to go before the frost free time....although
the weather has been awesome!

Who remembers the old tales... seen the dandelions are blooming and thought
that was the sign of no more freezing weather... but could really be wrong--
you know, old age kicking in...
