no more freeze

The weather has been nice and warm, but nights are still cool. and last year we had a hard freeze in early May!

This is Mesquite starting to bud.  Common lore locally is that the mesquite will not start to bud until the danger of a freeze has passed.  Could still be frost, but no more hard freeze.  Still keeping up the hoops, the frost blanket and the wall-o-waters until all danger is past.  Our last official frost date is 5/15, and it can still be cool (below) 40 nights right until June! 

Of course, by then its too hot for anything to grow!!
