Its nice to see at least one of my roses coming back this year so far. The Japanese beetles did lots of damage to my roses in the last few years so if any of them come back this year, I'm happy.
Today in Maine, temps will be in the low 70sF and sunshine all day. I love this kind of weather.
A cook-out this afternoon with my good friend is on the list for today. Steaks on the grille. Mmmmmm good!
The best thing is, I'll be able to pick a tomato or two when I want to add to a salad or just for nibbling, and right outside my doorway. I also have a Lizzano, a Tiny Tim and a Tumbling Tiger in their pots outside the kitchen, all small tomatoes and handy.
I hope my fellow gardeners are recovering from the torrential rains we've been having but I know the Forest Service is happy the woods aren't tinder dry any longer. There's always some good and bad news in Nature.
