April is supposed to be rainy. If you recall the old saying "April showers bring May flowers"? Well, we ain't getting the rain. We are in a dangerous dry period. I believe the weather service has put up a "red flag" meaning that open fires of any kind could spark a fire. Living in a forest preserve you worry about such things. And the farmers are equally worried. We have not had much moisture all winter and very little this spring, and I'm sure this will not bode well for the planting season.
I'm debating just how much flowers I might plant, seeing that I may have to water every day. But I want to have my usual pretty petunias and marigolds and I might just plant some gladiolas as well.
What will you be planting this spring? Or have you already, depending upon where you live. Let me know. I'd love to hear from all of you who stop by.
