The calendar says Spring is 6 days away, but Mother Nature thinks differently. The rhododendron has lavender flower buds and the bare spirea branches are sprouting leaves.
Further evidence that Spring is here: the vinca is blooming and sprouting new vines with tiny leaves. Unfortunately, it also means that it’s time to start weeding the planting beds.
With many unseasonably warm days alternating with cooler days this winter, you pretty much had to check the temperature daily to decide how warm a coat to wear. My new winter coat didn’t get worn much and now it’s time to put it away.
