A Month to Remember: May 2020

To me, the end of May also marks the end of Spring, which means- of course- that the beginning of June is the unofficial beginning of Summer. Usually I like to celebrate the transition of the seasons this time of year with a trip to a greenhouse to pick up some flowers for my kitchen […]

I know that the expression “In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb” usually only applies to the month of March- but I feel that it’s a fitting description for April, as well- especially this past weekend. As if Mother Nature’s sense of humor wasn’t already a bit odd- she went ahead and dumped some […]
