We're preparing for a spell of summer today. The forecast calls for temperatures to be in the 80's all weekend long. Our sidewalk cafe tables are ready, the planters painted and umbrellas up. But there are no flowers in the stores - just pansies. The weather's gone crazy - late frosts, too much rain, too cold so although we are ready with our Iced Tea, Lemonade and Tea Ice Cream, nature must take its own course and we have to wait for begonias and marigolds.
Undaunted, we've created our own garden indoors. Beautiful china mugs with tulips and garden flowers and a 8 oz. canister with Spring written all over it.
