For all you southerly Texan gardeners in mid summer mode

This is why we don't even think about doing much up here with annuals until May:

90 today...
Monday:
Rain/Snow Mix
Hi 44� : Low 31�
*LIGHT SNOW POSSIBLE OVER THE NORTHERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE AREA ... INCLUDING AMARILLO & CLOVIS!** Residents of the northern two-thirds of the area (all except for the far southern part of the TX Panhandle) may wake up Monday morning to light snow falling from the sky. There will be a chance for some accumulation

Well that does not thrill me at all, but glad for the warning... I was planning to put a few things out today but guess I will hold off

I spent $40 bucks on petunia's at Lowe's yesterday. Spring fever and they were big and cheap. But, they will stay in pots so they can be hauled in for awhile yet with good ol Panhandle weather.

Yep, and it's headed my way, Richard.............a light freeze tonight. Surely this will be the last one (our usual Easter cool snap) and we can get on with Spring. Just hope we get more spring weather and don't jump immediately into summer temps.

I feel for you Richard!
Snow this late would throw my game off but you handle it so well. Looking forward to seeing your bloomers come May!

Oh dear, Richard...................that doesn't look at all like Spring !!! It was thirty at my house this morning, and I hope everything is going to be okay. Those petunias are going to make your yard look so happy in a few days.

Praying for that, also, Richard. Now you can get on with planting those petunias......................Sunday is Easter, and think MN will not send us any more freezes after that.

"If it will just rain..." Now Richard, you know that old saying "If a frog had wings he wouldn't bump his butt every time he jumped"!

Rain would be absolutely wonderful.

I woke my almost three year old grand daughter up from a nap yesterday to see a shower. Its a rare sight for her!

We got four showers yesterda... and two-tenths of an inch --- but, better than nothing. And, teaching the grand daughter the joy of playing in rain puddles after the shower was priceless!
