Seriously? It’s only supposed to hit 42 degrees with rain/sleet/snow mix. Hello, people. It’s MAY for cryin’ out loud! I figured I’d better go out and grab some pictures of the few flowers blooming in my yard. I have some gorgeous yellow and purple irises and my two rosebushes have buds. The wisteria only put out three bracts of blooms. THREE! I have two vines that are in my oak trees climbing over 60 feet. Just about the time the vines budded, we got a hard freeze. In APRIL!
Dear Mr. Gore, you are full of horse pucky. Our local meteorologist has been saying that ever since the discussion started. Weather is cyclic. This is the coldest spring in 100 years, despite a warmer than normal winter.
That said, I’m not here to discuss science, non-science, or the politics of weather. All I know is that it was 80 degrees yesterday, and this beauty was right outside my window. I thought I’d post it for those of you with snow on the ground. I also want to know what your favorite spring flower is. We might as pretend it’s spring, right? So…name your bloom. 😀
