I’m a little sad and frustrated with our Michigan weather lately. My garden had to be put on hold, and let’s face it, we don’t exactly have very long summers here (eye roll happening).
Our spring has been more like fall. We’ve had some really nice days were it gets in the low 70’s (and everyone’s happy) and then BAM…right back down into the 40’s or 50’s. Lately we’ve been getting freeze warnings and one of the trees, we just planted, couldn’t handle Michigan’s bi-polar seasonal temperatures. It was the willow tree from an old neighbor.
I took a branch cutting from his giant, enormous and beautiful tree last spring and placed it lovingly into a cup of water (to grow roots) and kept it alive for a year. After it established a strong root system, I planted it in a pot with dirt and kept it watered. Of course, the same day we planted it outside in its new home we got hit with frost and have been getting frosty nights several times since then. I don’t think it’s gonna survive but if it does, it’s gonna be a miracle tree!
I’ve been seeing lots of southerners (on my Facebook feed) with their shorts on, enjoying fantastic weather. A relaxin’ day at the beach, nights out on a patio with a little fire glowing or riding out a lazy day on their boat and I’m jealous. I wish the whole world could enjoy the same consistent warm temps, ya know not to hot and not to cold. Why do I live in a state where we only have, at best, 3 months of warm weather? I must be getting old because I am not fond of cooler temps anymore.
I haven’t even been able to work on my furniture unless I bring it in the house. My work space isn’t heated (yet) so that’s all been on hold too. I did bring in my little desk to finish up and I created a page on Facebook to showcase and sell my restored furniture, it’s called…Lovely Home by Aimee. If you’re having crappy weather and are stuck inside go check it out and let me know what ya think. ( I could use the feed back)
Where ever you are, I hope you’re enjoying lots of warm weather. Just bein’ nosey, how many months of warm weather do you get?
