Tuesday

February is a very nice time to live in the Sonoran desert. It has been in the low seventies most days this month and the lows are in the forties. March would have perfect weather were it not for the the wind, which typically blows hard in March and Merle Sneed doesn't like windy weather. I spent the day planting in my garden, now that the danger of freezing temperatures is gone. At the moment it is kind of slim pickings in our garden centers because it is too early for hot weather plants. I planted petunias, snapdragons, allsyum and geraniums in pots on the patio. I have several large pots that had annuals in them last year and I will be planting roses in those, once roses become available locally. The fellow at one of the garden centers told me that he was going to get roses in his store in March. One of the old line gardens here won't sell them until May first. Everyone has an opinion. I pruned my rose bushes in January and they are just now starting to leaf out. It is about time to fertilize them. Anyway, I'm excited about spring, but can also feel the dread of the approaching summer. In real Sneed family news, the lovely Mrs. Sneed and Daughter Sneed are attending their last class meeting tonight in their quest to earn their masters degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy. It has been a long hard three-year journey for them, but they are done with their internship work and will receive their degrees in May. They make an old guy proud. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky
