I don’t think anyone can complain about this past weekend and the beginning of the week. Best of all the sun was shining and there was no fog. Yes there was some wind, but it did not stop those beachcombers, the parents and kids at the Boys and Girls Club, the bike riders. Yes, they were all out and enjoying every minute of the sun.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Emanuelly Borges, who celebrated April 21; Emily Freeman and Alexis Lavigne, April 25; Adriana Young, April 26; and to Madison Mello who celebrates her day today, April 27.

This weather has people out and working in the yard, raking trimming their shrubs edging the gardens, fertilizing the lawns, and feeding the shrubs. That is all well and good, but then they want to start planting the annuals. It is the one of the hardest parts of our job at the Nursery to say “no you can’t plant yet.”

May 15 is when the weather people say it is a safe time for the last frost. However, we recommend Memorial Day.

You all know how I love to look through Facebook and this week’s focus was on Grammies. Three of my school friends have been showing pictures of the their grandbabies as proud Grammies do. Barbara Magnuson Phillips has been a Grammy for eight years to Maddie and Mallory. They love their Bebe and all the things she does with them. And they are great on giving tutorial videos like showing us how to make Unicorn Slime. They are following in their mom Leah’s footsteps of being a teacher.

Linda Frank LaBell loves showing us pictures of her granddaughters Leya and Lark. They have to do nothing but sit there and smile and they win your heart, and you can tell they have Linda’s heart, hook line and sinker.

Marcia Rogers Valentzas is the newest Grammy to Lowen Shaw. Marcia is loving taking her videos of Lowen at the Flying Horses or walking. Lowen, like the rest of the grandbabies, is just beautiful. I have to say I enjoy watching all these women being so happy and spoiling their girls.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
