Low Painting Weather

It was a freakish 82 degrees high on the low spot today. It was nice to be warm and not really hot while I transplanted shrubberies in to the garden to be. One last little electrical item must be attended to before I call for final inspection again. We'll call it a loose wire nut. My electrical consultant was busy today so the loose wire nut will get fixed tomorrow after work. Then I hope to call for my second final inspection Tuesday morning.

It was a perfect time and the perfect weathers to continue painting the back wall of the cabin. I got the low part, the easy to reach part done. Passing inspection and getting my certificate of occupancy, even moving in doesn't mean all the cabin building is done. There are still several processes left to reach total coziness.

At the end of the day it was time for a stroll. This freakish warm weather is causing quite the reaction in the ridge top garden. The PJM rhododendrons went from bud to full bloom over night.

Fritillaria pallidiflora gets ready for bloom.

The species Tulipa clusiana 'Cynthia' I think joins the rare red tulips

Iris bucharica is making a very strong showing in its new home in the sunny utility meadow.

Primrose blooms now. The native Larkspur, Delphinium tricorne, in the top right of the picture will join in a bit later.

A warm April could move things along rather quickly. The dogwoods and cherries are about to bloom and each new day another inhabitant of the wild cultivated garden shows up.

Now none of this means it won't snow, sleet or freeze again. Anything is possible at this time of year.

So glad you were able to get some more painting done. It looks good.
Oh, such pretty blooms.
Yes, it could do most anything this time of yr.
Last 2 days have been rather warm here. Needed cold air, humidity is worse. Trying to get Spider plants removed from around air unit. You wouldn't believe how things sink around here, even buildings. lol
