We have needed a fire to heat the house on most of the days in May. It has been unusually windy in a place that is generally windy.
We are in another rain delay, but I am tired of the gray, drab photographs.
Today we will see some from the loveliest day that 2013 has yet produced in GriggsDakota.
I am impressed by the number of seeds a tree, even a scrubby little tree, can produce in the Spring. It's a good thing that they don't all grow or we would have no fields of crops to cultivate.
It is good to remember that there is order in the world. This Spring has seemed so random, so unpredictable.
This week we stopped planting corn. Notice that I didn't say we finished. The rain has ensured that there will be no more corn or wheat planted this season.
We will continue to plant soybeans and will try to get some pinto beans planted, as well. Weather will determine whether or not that happens.
This week, the tulips are finally showing some promise of bloom.
One over achiever is already in bloom
The earliest lilacs are ready to open.
We say a fond farewell to May and travel on to June with dreams of Summer in GriggsDakota.
