I should wear gloves I know. Now my hands are open blisters from trying to manually remove dandelions from our 2 acres. There seems to be close to zero tolerance here but now, no heads can be seen and we aren't poisoning our aquifer and birds. I've planted my summer bulbs and seeds. Need to buy vegetables for my garden. I've spent hours in the last few days but still much needs to be done.

Now we have three hummers: the new one the female.

Naomi is back from her adventures so less time now with Maya. It was especially hard yesterday as we had a power outage: no water either.

It was so nice not to have to bundle up as the sun came out to do my 32.5 loop. Extra bonus: no wind. This is half the distance of our longest day. True we won't be on paved roads but I am definitely getting stronger. Went by several Canada geese families with newly hatched goslings.

Glad that your weather has been kinder.
And I can't wear gloves in the garden. I need to be able to feel what I am doing. So I pay the price. Not usually blisters, but certainly rips and tears.

It was below zero on April 30, and flowers were in bloom a week later! That can only mean that "below zero" was indeed on the celsius scale.

P.S. "And I can't wear gloves in the garden. I need to be able to feel what I am doing."

Child, I seldom wear gloves either, but since I have two artificial joints, and since I always manage to cut myself while moving compost (which is inside wire enclosures), I'm starting to wonder if I'm being stupid. In case you don't know, infections tend to gravitate to the area around artificial joints, and once it gets there, the joint usually has to come out.

Snowbrush: I am lucky. I do get cut, scratched and scraped in the garden but they rarely become infected.
