Sweet Spring

April 9th, 2013

Dexter (aka Big D) and I have been enjoying spending as much time as possible outside working in the garden. We work until the sun goes down and a chill returns to the air. He’d actually like to stay out much longer, but I make him come indoors when it gets dark.
Yesterday I played hooky from work. It was a beautiful warm day with highs in the mid 50’s. It’s supposed to rain the rest of the week, so I figured I could spend the rainy days getting all my office work finished up. Is there anything better than spending a day in the garden on a beautiful spring day?

What would you consider the perfect temperature for a day in the garden?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
