Mais où sont les neiges d’antan? (where are the snows of yesteryear?)
Early daffodils blooming in January, late ones in March – 4 weeks ahead of schedule. Maples blooming in late February. Red buds in full blooms now. Peach and cherry blossoms passed their peak. Morels already and first asparagus picked on March 28 (friends of mine picked some even earlier in their garden). Strawberries blossoming. Buds breaking on the grapes.
..and it’s dry, dry, dry (although the grass sure looks green… but the creek is low and the ground is dry). It is … disturbing.
The garden is exploding and I am not ready for it.
So… for this (and because of other projects, some of which might end-up being discussed on the blog), I am (I have been) taking a blog break! A couple of months maybe… maybe less.
Happy spring. Let’s hope we have a cooler than average summer.
