What Happened to April?

Seriously? It’s May already? That was a fast month. A couple rounds of visitors, some travel, work (both at home and at work), and a few pitched battles with the wasps that have decided to make their home on our deck turned the month of April into a blur!

I did manage to make it out fishing on the lake a couple times. Once on the kayak with my son, and once just from the dock with my nephews. The bass around the north end of the lake, especially the juveniles, were pretty aggressive going after real and artificial worms. Around the dock, the boys had no luck hooking the few nibbles they got.

We’ve gotten a late start to our gardening this year. Mainly due to losing a couple perennials out front this winter, and failing to sit down and come up with a solid landscape plan for the front of the house. We do have some herbs and veggies getting a late start in our reading nook that gets a ton of sun. When it’s not raining at least.

Speaking of rain, we closed out the month with a cloudy and rainy week, and look to be starting off May much the same. We definitely need the rain, but I wouldnt mind a little more nice spring weather. The only plus to the continued rain is that the grass seed I’m putting down this week will have some nice moist soil to start with.

That’s about all for now folks. More to come as spring hits its stride.

Cheers!
