Has Spring arrived in your neck of the woods?
Here spring arrived aaages ago - we had the first snowdrops sometime in the middle of February - now we've got daffodils and hyacinths and all sorts :)
Is sure has! All the flowering trees are in bloom and the forsythia is vibrant. Temperatures are mostly in the low sixties, but we had a couple of days over seventy this week.
Slowly, slowly spring is creeping forward. I have snowdrops and crocus blooming; the moss in the back yard is turning green; I've found deer droppings in the yard so the grass much be coming to life. The pussy willow catkins are furry and the sap in the maple trees (and the oak trees and the ash trees and the ....) is rising. Crows are courting. Hawks are nesting. Onions are sprouting and the motorcyclists have hit the highway.
Hard to say. Today was great, in the mid 50's, but we could get two feet of snow next week.
It seems like spring, but I'm convinced we're in for one really good snow / cold patch sometime this month.
Finally. When had a big snow blast last week.Ugh! Now to day, Friday was a damp start but by the afternoon, the window s were open, birds singing and a beautiful spring day 75 degrees. What a day!
As is typical for New England, we had a few gorgeous, warm, sunny days. But now it's back to being cold and damp. It won't get warm again until May.
Almost - still some bouts of extreme cold and flurries here and there.
Oh yes, finally!!! My Crocuses and Daffodil are up...Lilacs and Forsythia are budding...Lupines are coming back up....just everything is coming back to life! It's wonderful!
