Re: weekend chores

  Got back from our roundabout trip to Colorado by way of Seattle and 
Olympia, and have finished reading the 719 emails.  I responded to a couple 
before I finished, and of course found someone else had already answered the 
question.  Oh well.  You guys always have the answers.
   The weather in Olympia was lovely.  We left here on the 20th in relatively 
mild weather - temperature near 40 degrees.  Washington state was lovely with 
spring well advanced.  My daughter-in-law had daffodils, fruit trees and 
redbud blooming - everything green.  The Seattle Flower Show was just lovely. 
 Very impressive commercial gardens and plant society displays. Maybe not 
quite as big as the Philadelphia and Boston shows, but very high quality 
displays. I always find it interesting to see what is grown in other parts of 
the country. The "Standard Flower Show" put on by the Washington State 
Federation was a bit of a disappointment - nice, but not quite up to what I 
would have expected from a State show.  
  Then we flew to Denver on Monday and arrived in 8 degree weather.  It 
snowed about two inches every night and stayed in the teens for the entire 
three days.  Back to Olympia where it was still mild, but back in New York 
the weather is bitter cold.  In the teens all day yesterday and high 20s 
  My seeds have come - what was I thinking of!  I have ordered enough seeds 
for ten gardens.  But of course I do this every year, and usually manage to 
use most of them.  I am just frustrated because I don't feel that it's time 
to start things indoors even though some years I would have plants almost 
ready to put out by now.  This is a strange, strange winter.  
  It was a good trip - good to see signs of spring, and two sets of 
grandkids, but it's even better to be home, even with the crazy weather.  
I've missed keeping up with all of you.  Now just THINK SPRING!!!
