Spring has Sprung!

jemdandy

Yesterday, The weather gave us another 2 to 3 inches of snow and a cold night. Today, the temperature climbed to 50 F and all the snow is gone. I saw a chipmunk in my backyard. Spring has sprung - again. Siberian squall has bloomed. Yesterday, those were sticking their deep blue blossoms up through the snow - now I know why those are called Siberian.

It's gorgeous here! A cold front did come through last night, but tomorrow it will again be in the high 70's.


It's all coming at the same time this year, due to being unseasonably warm. The lilacs, redbud AND the dogwood are all blooming and the azaleas are ready to pop. Lily of the Valley pips are up and beginning to open.


It's glorious but I prefer a longer, slower coming of blossoms. It will be summer by Derby time, not spring, and that's a bit too early for me.


I especially love the native redbud that grows in among the "junk" shrubs and trees along roads. SO pretty to see that lovely burst of color.


The trees are leafing out quite quickly as well. It will be a very pretty Easter Sunday this year.

We were the opposite -- pushing 75 yesterday afternoon, this morning after the storms and winds went through, down into the 30's. But it turned out to be a pretty afternoon! I had to mow for the first time for the year.

The poor daffodils, though, are literally bowing their heads, still, even though yesterday's inches of snow are mostly gone. I'm still waiting for that hint of green on the trees and bushes!

It poured here today, but the forecast says the next 10 days are going to be sunny and warm. Can't wait - we need to dry out a bit!

Just think, in a few months we will be complaining about the heat...

I won't be! Winter has been hanging here for six months. This morning I woke up to snow on the ground. Again. Give me some green!

Radio weatherman this morning promised that the last of the 'snow puddles' would melt here by noon. It was wet, heavy snow. I see it's broken off a big part of one of our arbor vitae. Tying this up may help as it has done with others; we have about a hundred along our lot lines.

That snake does look like it recently swallowed something; it has a bump in the middle.
