Though sometimes the 'Golden Years' seem more like tarnished brass, they are not the end of adventure. I invite you to follow me as I transcend from full-time government employee to full-time life observer. I'll cover life, government, travel, food, gardening, whatever crosses my path.
This week in the garden, despite the frost, seems to indicate that summer is on its way. I am cutting the grass every five days; the cool nights are really helping it grow. All of the trees are finally starting to leaf out. The Snowdrift crabapples are in bloom. I took this photo from the deck looking over the roof of the house. I never even think to look at this tree from this direction.
It is not fully open yet, but here is a close-up from last Spring.
I am sure it won't be long before I am complaining about the heat.
