Is it Spring yet?

It's gloomy, wet and 54 degrees today. What happened to May flowers? The impatience we planted last month look wind blown and bedraggled. And forget about getting the peppers and eggplants into their outdoor pots. They're still waiting on the dining table for a flash of good weather that lasts more than a day or two.
I am determined to plant the veggies this weekend - but I've said that for three weeks running. They can handle the chill, but the wind could do some real damage. Since we're up on the 20th floor, the currents can be pretty rough. Stems have just snapped right off our rose bushes in the past couple weeks.
Well, it's still early, but I was hoping to get a jump on the season this year.
Of course, when July rolls around and the humidity hits 100%, I'll be back here complaining about how the plants are dehydrated and fungus is attacking our tomatoes!

Next topic: ordering a watering system - we'll be setting up a timer so we don't have to consign our friends to do weekend watering while we're away...

Just checked out your fig tree post. That inspires me to try planting one of them next year. We have a couple of big trees on our terrace, but none bearing fruit. Come on back and check my site any time. Glad to have a visitor!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
