Suddenly Spring!

After the Great Whumping that was this winter, especially February with 40+ inches of snow, March has not only been calm but warm. It appears that for at least a week it will remain that way, too. It's been in the 50s for the past 4 days and it appears that it will remain around there for the rest of the week!

The daffodils are coming up.

The iris reticulatas are coming up.

The rose is showing new growth.

It is really early. Keeping in mind that in the past 15 years we’ve had not one but 2 major blizzards the middle of March, I’m hoping that this trend is not a fluke. As much as I like winter, this spring is a wonderful breath of fresh air.

Tomato seedlings are up, the artichokes are up, the peppers are just starting to peep out. I have cabbages and lettuce to start, and some flowers, too.

Are you in danger of having any flooding problems because of your copious quantities of snow? Would hate to see those lovely little brave spring flowers get washed away!

I haven't start anything yet. I was planning to for this weekend but I'm going away next week, so it will have to wait till next weekend.

Thank goodness, the snow has been melting slowly for a couple weeks now. Our property is now only about 1/4 covered, but it is still at least a foot deep in most areas!! But they are calling for rain this week. I'm worried that the bulbs might rot...
