      …and in D.C. when I was there, they were practically on to summer!

      I’m hoping that it will continue to be a “slow” spring here, with temperatures remaining in the low 60s and the flowers and trees gradually blossoming a little more every day. In Milwaukee, it often felt like Spring lasted a day or two and then we were in the midst of full-blown summer!

      When do your raspberry bushes start producing fruit?

    I know what you mean about spring in Milwaukee…they seem to only last a a few days, and the bulbs that Krystof worked so hard to plant are up and gone(not to mention the money spent). My favorite flowers are the ones the come in spring and don’t last very long, probably because we didn’t have those kinds in Hawaii. Oh yeah, and the rabbits usually eat the tulips where we live now…ugh. But rabbits at least are cute. The slugs that eat the tomato plants and beans are NOT cute! By the way, I saw your jewery model in the front row of our concert last night! Was like having a piece of you there :).

      Hi Erin,

      At our house in Milwaukee, we used to do “war” with the squirrels…didn’t help that one of the neighbors put out nuts for them! I found that sprinkling dried blood into my planters really kept them away (plus it was good for the plants.) I don’t know if that would keep the rabbits away, but you could try. I got my dried blood mix from Minor’s Garden Center.

      So nice that you saw Ann at the MSO concert! She studies with Jenny S. now and seems to be loving it. From what I’ve read from the reviews Larry has sent me, the accident with the shell was maybe a good thing acoustically speaking…

      Miss you!
