Mary Godin works in her garden in Auburn on Thursday. Godin, 92, said the sunshine inspired her to pull back her spring perennials to make room for her summer flowers. “When I read that it was going to be nice today, I decided that was what I was going to do today — accomplish something,” she said. She and her late husband, Wilfred Godin, moved to the neighborhood in 1948. Godin said she also has a vegetable garden in back where she picked 40 asparagus spears following a 90-degree day this spring. “They really like the heat,” Godin said of asparagus.
