Cue Ms Streisand "What's too painful to remember, we simply choose to forget." So it's the good springs we will remember whenever we remember the way we were. Hopefully spring will make herself known soon in your neck of the woods.

So you're saying we all got spoiled and soft during those "nice" years? I suppose it's true, but it's amazing how quickly we adopt something as the new normal. I had a landscaper out yesterday to quote on a project and I asked about his timeline and he said he's already four weeks behind on spring jobs.

I can't manage the new bleeding heart name either.

I have looked back on 7 years of April weather. This is definitely the coldest so far. My garden is usually way ahead in growth and the weather warmer. We are having the same temps as you are today. It is supposed to be warmer for a couple of days, more normal, then back to cool temps. This too shall pass...I hope.

It probably would help if we did not read all those west coast and UK blogs where it is always seems to be nice weather.

Well,here I am from South Florida.I admire your resolve.


And today tells the difference between our snow date. It didn't go above 36 yesterday, but the snow melted steadily all day long, having fallen on 40-degree ground. Today in 55-degree sun, all the midseason daffodils are opening, grateful for a long cool drink, and everything looks ready to expand the minute it gets truly warm. It really is the latest ever start for "real spring" in the last 25 years -- but I'm betting that will be undetectable by early May. First real weeding of the season: beefy dandelions. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!

Right about now, weeding sounds wonderful!


It was heaven to do something more productive than gaze out from inside. Last chance for those inside jobs! Already too late for me, but you have a week or so...
