Re: Weather

It was 73 when I went past the thermometer a few minutes ago. We just missed a freeze yesterday. It was supposed to be in the 20s, but while there was frost on the roof, the plants look ok, and I didn't see any frost on the ground.

Our last frost here was on May 5th one year, but that's been almost 2 decades. In recent years, until the Great Easter Freeze last year, frost has generally been done with by April 5th or so. What is weird is that winter has been warmer than usual in the last decade, so plants suffer more damage.

Spring is here to stay, I think.

Looking at the weather map this morning I noticed the same thing.  Either
parts of the country are warmer than normal or colder.  Nothing seemed
ordinary.  I would really like to be ordinary instead of expecting frost
April 14!!!  Of course, our (usual) last frost date is April 15, and
the date we had an awful killing frost last year.

Btw, Cyndi, the flowers you described sounded really lovely.  I'm also
jealous over your progress with your gardens.
