Hi Jane -- New York is copying Colorado with temperature
extremes. We've been up to 90* and then down to 33* in a
miserable seesaw which the plants do not like at all. Have 
not set out any veggies or annual flowers, and it seems like
a desert around here. 

In a burst of lunatic reorganization last fall, Jimmie cut off
ALL the underground water soaking hoses for my nine beds,
and brought them inside.  Never happened before, and my word!
what chaos has ensued!  They got tangled. And some mysteriously
got cut. I am suspicious that he might have helped himself to
a length here and there, as he made changes under the shrubbery. 
Bottom line:  an awful lot of work. 

I'll be thinking of you when the heat suddenly arrives -- and we can
both petition Heaven to cut out these games!
