Yes, its only April, but we’ve been running the AC all week. Some of my tulips are blooming, but the peonies have barely emerged. If the weather continues to warm, before long we will be wishing we had winter again. It’s true, you can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. Did Will Rogers say that?
Young John the gardener sent me some photos of his visit to the Tidal Basin last night where cherry trees are peaking. Below are some of his photos. David said, how’d he do that, referring to his shots from within the trees. Knowing John he scampered up a tree before the Park Police could get him. You’re not supposed to do that of course.

Meanwhile, my DIL posted some photos of my magnificent grandson Jacob at his favorite sport. He is small but can slug the ball out of the park. He plays short stop and hit two home runs at his last game (only one the week before, but it was a grand slam). He’s a freshman in high school. Remember when you could play ball like this. I do. Its in the genes I think.
