The photo above shows a few of the blossoms on my pear tree. You can see a number of other great flowery photos by checking out my post for this month's Gardener Bloggers' Bloom Day. Every 15th of the month, garden bloggers take photos of the the flowers blooming in their gardens and post them for others to see. Our friend Carol at May Dreams Gardens started this fantastic monthly event.
There's a good chance Spring might finally have arrived in Wisconsin. I've had flowers blooming in my garden for the past two months, but cold temperatures and tons of rain have kept me out of it for the most part. Last week temperatures got up into the 80s for about two days before plunging back into the 40s and 50s (and 30s at night!). This weekend's forecast is calling for more 70 degree days, and I'm pleased about that.
We certainly hope the weather stays nice when Noel and Judy represent CobraHead at this Saturday's Festival of Spring at the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh, WI.
Other upcoming events include:
Klehm Arboretum's Garden Fair June 3-5, in Rockford, IL.
The California Master Gardener Conference May 31 - June 3, in Santa Rosa, CA.
The MREA Energy Fair June 17 - 19, in Custer, WI.
We'd certainly love to see you at any one of these events if you can make it!
Cheers and Happy Spring Gardening!
