Nice Day

We went out this evening to watch our niece play softball. The wind was blowing steady out of the west strong enough to keep the flag whipping at the the city ball field. The temperature was in the 50's but the wind made if feel much colder. I was thankful I took a jacket.
Today was a beautiful day. I got out on the newly repaired lawnmower and cut the back yard and the field between the house and the barn. I then fired up the old TroyBilt tiller and broke up our garden.
This is what my mother-in-law would call Blackberry Winter - that cold snap that always seems to follow spring, and the blooming of my apple trees. The weatherman says we will have frost the next few nights. I'm hoping it is a light frost and not a hard freeze. Last year we didn't get the first apple off our trees because the weather turned off brutally cold after the blossoms had set.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have a repeat this year.
I've run out of steam so I'm signing off for now. Have a great weekend.
