Just spent the last 1/2 hour outside without a coat on. Brisk, to say the least. Especially without a fire going.

What I like about it is that it's already getting light out! Nights are short. About another two weeks until summer and the days start getting shorter.

It may be chilly out... but the options on the other end of the scale are a distant memory and in the distant future.

Planted my own rhubarb yesterday. If it works out, I won't have to hit up my neighbors patches anymore.

Follow up on the Golden Rain Tree that I whacked with the lawnmower late last summer: It appears my patch is working, I think its going to make it.

Brisk? In June? Ok send me some brisk and Ill send you some heat!

We've hit 100 several days now. And even back in May it was high 90's.

We are in a "moderate" drought. I baled a 10 acre field for my son and we typically get 14-20 rolls. I got 8. Need rain. AND BRISK! :)

My Ma lives in Grenada,Ms and its the first time the reservoir has been topped off in 10 years or so. Yeah, I know about water woes. I couldn't live in your heat. My well is only 11 feet deep. Takes a really hot dry summer to run my well dry. It does happen though. My well is about the only thing I haven't worked on, on this property. Cold and windy today too.
