The first bloom of the azaleas has come and gone, and now the dogwoods are aflower. The grasses in the field out past the front yard are taller than I left them last fall. April is a week and some hours away and I still haven't gotten around to seeing if the mower will start.
When I do get it started, I'll find out soon after whether the can of bug repellent I bought last year still has the potency to keep ticks from latching on.
And then I'll find out if my Claritin pills still work.
