The four of us will be taking a short vacation to Kentucky over the Easter weekend.
April’s weather is not to my liking most of the time. So, I think it’s appropriate to try and run away from it. We’ve ran from April before with hopes of finding true spring south of here. It’s always there much sooner than it is here. Even after 21 years, I’ve still not adjusted to zone 5 gardening. I never will.
I always look forward to these treks south – not only do I get to reconnect with my family, I also get to re-energize and strengthen my south-central Kentucky accent.
On April 6, 1991 I married the lady who: has helped me endure 18 zone 5 winters, given me two beautiful children, cooks and cleans after working 8 hours a day, buys the food, does the finances and laundry, takes the kids shopping for new clothes, tells me when I need new jeans, goes to bluegrass concerts with me, ignores me when I’m being unruly and ambivalent, weeds, tends, and plants the herb garden, puts up with my master gardening attitude, and lastly, is the only woman I would die for.
