It is May But We've Had April Showers!

Yes, it's finally May, but here in NH we've had so much rain it still feels like April.  Ball games have had to be canceled and gardening put off until it warms up.

 I had a wonderful Mother's Day.  My children and grandchildren joined me at my home and we did some yard work.  I've weeded out some terrible grass in my herb garden with the help of my daughters.  I'm in the process of adding new herb plants but I'm waiting for it to get a bit warmer to add more.  Possibility of frost tonight!

Today my sister Dot and I went to the coast to visit our oldest brother, Dick, who is recovering from a stroke he had a week ago Wed.  He is still hospitalized and it may be another week before he can go to rehab.  He has good movement and he can talk thankfully!  He seems to have some trouble finding words, especially right after he naps.  But we did have a good conversation and he was very happy to see us.  I'll be going back some day next week.

After our visit I brought my sister home and stopped by my friend Kathleen's house.  She lives on a lake shore and she was on her porch spinning.  She noticed a very large loon in the cove and I had my camera with me so took a few pictures.  I'm not that pleased with the results, maybe I need to consider getting a larger telescope lens!  I'll post a couple of photos anyway. 

A busy time coming up with graduations and parties.  Have a good week!
