Well its only 5 weeks since I last wrote and so much has changed. We had another 2 lots of snow then day after day of rain but over the first weekend of April Spring arrived and yes it does come that quick!
At the moment the temps are averaging between the high 60s to the mid 70s and last Thursday it got to 82 but that was abit too hot for me so early on in the year.
Since then all the fruit trees are either in flower or have just finished, all the veg seeds I planted are up and everything in the garden is growing at an alarming rate. Its almost as tho the plants are making up for the weeks lost as Spring was so late.
As I know we will have no more frosts now my tomato plants are planted so are the Dahlias (remember I went out in the middle of the night to bring them all in)
All the female storks are sitting on eggs the swallows too and all the other birds are busy building nests, I knew my dogs hair would come in use for something!
Normally we are 4 weeks ahead of the UK but at the moment I dont know so ive put some pics on so maybe someone can tell me.
If you not having good weather cheer up its will soon come.
