Quilt With Us

Happy Mother's Day to all you other moms!

My big plan for Mother's Day is always to put out my bedding plants and play in my vegetable garden. When the kids were little they always bought me six packs of petunias or marigolds and I'd spend the afternoon playing in the dirt. Sometimes they "helped".

There are no kids here anymore but it's still what I plan to do. Not this year. It is after noon and we've made it up to  34 degrees. It snowed last night. My bedding plants are sulking in the garage. Well, I guess I'll just have to go sew something.

Have fun whatever you do.

Oh, yes, I can believe it. There's a lot of hope and fear gardening here. The last frost is always a mystery and the first frost can be anywhere from August to October. The 4th of July can be 105 or, like one year when the kids were small, it was snowing on the parade.

Putting out bedding plants on Mother's Day is a tradition for me, as well. We didn't have any snow here in Oregon, but we've just come out of a very rainy couple of weeks (there's a reason we Oregonians have webbed feet!). I planted some marigolds, lobelia and carnations in my tree trunk planters and on Saturday, I put some sunflower seeds in the ground! I'm hoping spring will be in your area soon!

We were up at the mountain house over Mother's Day.  Had a lovely breakfast at the Mill Creek Cafe about 7 miles away in front of a roaring fire.  It has been a little chilly at 5,000 feet, and we even had a little snow flurry on Saturday, much to our surprise.  Tulips are blooming, however.  My petunias in the wine barrel are in shock, but seem to be alive.  Best of all was a great phone call from my son who lives in Kaktovik, Alaska (above the arctic circle).  He's just happy that it's above freezing at last!  Daylight is from about 4:00am to 11:00pm now, so the snow is melting -- mud season!

You can keep the snow, Barbara, but I fear it is headed our way.  The NE panhandle was covered in snow this morning as well.  It is supposed to hit here tonight and tomorrow.  It is overcast, windy (goes without saying - sigh), cold and damp today.  My irises are starting to bloom - they are late, but making a desperate try at convincing us spring SHOULD be here.

Oh, I feel bad that the weather is so cold. We have finally slipped into Spring. We had a quiet Mother's Day...by choice. Went and watched the boys play lacrosse yesterday. That is like herding cats! lol Opened up the lake house and spent the night. Came home early to go grocery shopping and a few errands while hubby could go! Maybe next year you can play in the dirt on Mom's Day!
