I always look forward to being outside in the summer. There's something freeing about working in the garden in shorts, a short sleeve shirt and floppy hat to keep the sun off.
I always try to listen and plan accordingly to my friend KAKE-TV Meteorologist Frank Waugh when it comes to the weather forecast. When Frank says it’s going to rain, it’ll rain.
Usually, once we get to mid-May, we start making plans for summer. During previous Mays for me, it was getting training miles on the bike in preparation for a long bike ride.
It was a bit too early last weekend for Angie and I to see any wildflowers blooming on our bike ride through the Flint Hills. The recently burned prairie is coming back as it always does after the spring burn. Soon enough, though, the native wildflowers will be blooming in the area.
