Wordless Wednesday

20180218_083216Surprise! After days of unseasonable (or as I sometimes like to think of it, unreasonable) weather with temperatures in the upper 40s and even mid 50s, this happened!

But, no worries. We’re soon going back to “unreasonable.” It’s supposed to be even warmer by the time you read this–maybe mid-60s, or even 70!–so all this will be just a memory.

But this strange weather is never a good thing–not for plants, which start breaking dormancy early, not for animals, which get confused about breaking torpor, and not for people, who don’t know what to wear on a given day. Very unsettling.

    This seems to be a recurring theme for a few of us; warm temperatures to get things to bloom, followed by cool weather. We don’t get snow, but some spring flowers got frosted.

    That hasn’t happened here yet–it’s not quite warm enough for anything to bloom in my yard. When all of this disappeared on Wednesday, I looked and I could barely find snowdrops. But that is a regular thing for us in April now–just about every year things leaf out and bloom, sometimes early, sometimes on schedule, and then there’s a late freeze. That’s when I am glad that I don’t have to farm for a living.
