Ahead of Its Time
It's been in the 70's for over a week, and this week is going to be in the low 80's, eventually going down to the 50's and 60's next week. I thought at first I would just wait it out to at least the end of April. However, plants are up, daffodils are blooming, tulips budding, and tree buds are opening. Plants have actually pushed the leaves away and are above and beyond the leaf layer. I caved.
If it freezes, or we get that spring snow storm, I will be moaning and possibly trying to cover some plants, but I worry about the trees and their leaves the most. I would hate to go through a summer without those leafy, green, beautiful, shady trees.
Time will tell.
