Springing Spring

Spring needs some serious help lifting itself into full bloom. One month ago, I found the first daffodil. Today, we had snow and I will have to find someway to warm my fruit trees tonight. The projected low temperature of 26 is not a great thing for fruit trees in bloom . We have weeks in the upper 60s and low 70s, tricking the trees and flowers into bloom, then BAM, back to winter.

Isn't it funny how the cold always feels colder once you've been truly warm for a while. I'm hopeful that this is winter's last hurrah. I can't take much more.

For now, I'm out to cover the vegetables.

Oh, dear. In like a lion, indeed! I wondered when I heard on the morning news "10 inches in the south," whether you were affected.

Fingers & toes crossed for the survival of your fruits, nuts, & veggies.

Hope you come through this ok.
We got snow too, but nothing is flowering yet.
