I picked up these flowers on Thursday of last week, when we were having all that strange weather. Daily rain isn’t that unusual for this time of year, obviously — April showers bring May flowers — but the rain brought with it a very unseasonable cold front. I think last week we broke a record for lowest low temperature in Houston for this late in the spring. I’ve heard a surprising number of friends complain about this, but honestly, what could be better than mild temperatures when the sun comes out? We had a beautiful weekend and I’m sure we’ll all be wishing for a random cold front a month from now when our highs are in the 90s. Let’s enjoy all the beautiful greenery before the sun scorches away our more delicate plants!
