March 1 begins meteorological spring. That being said, it sure doesn’t look like that around my house.
This is the one bright spot. It’s my witch hazel, ‘Jelena.’
Its bright blooms can literally be seen from all over the yard. They can even be seen from the second story of my house!
But everything else, not so much. Here are my snowdrops–or not.
The chives on my porch are doing well–but they are in a glassed in environment.
And while these hellebores are called Lenten roses, we’re already well into the second week of Lent. They have some catching up to do, I think.
A few more freakishly warm 70 degree days are needed before my landscape catches up to where it’s supposed to be–but that’s okay. I’ll settle for what I have for now.
People have been talking about this meteorological spring for a few days. Isn’t it different in different regions?
Not that I am aware of, no. Just as astronomical spring comes on the same date for the northern hemisphere, so does meteorological spring. But if it’s ridiculous for me, it’s even more so in colder places like the Rockies, or northern Maine!
