Spring, Winter, Spring, Winter – Enough Already!
It’s time for spring to stop goofing around and get serious. Last weekend we had snow, and I really am not in the mood for any more winter wonderland. There wasn’t much accumulation and it melted pretty fast, but still.
And now we may get more of the same kind of limited but unseemly snowfall this coming weekend. All this April snow is causing disorientation as to season.
Here’s a little video Judy took on Saturday of April snowflakes.
Also, in a few days the temperature is supposed to go several degrees below freezing, which causes the Daffodils and other plants to go limp, as their cells pump out water to reduce the danger of bursting. A clever adaptation, but droopy Daffodils cause my spirits to droop as well.
With a little perspective, I force myself to admit that April was a lot worse in 2015 than it has been so far this year. Also, friends in other parts of the country have been hit with a lot more snow and cold than we’ve had to cope with here. Still, if you can’t complain about the weather, what can you do?
Also, I want to get out in the garden this weekend. Oh, where are the sunny but comfortably cool days of April?
