It’s the 2nd of April here in northwest New York State and the weather forecast calls for a high of 80 degrees F (27 C) today. This is very unusual, but I’ll take it. Last night we were able to sleep with a window open for the first time this year. We’ll certainly have colder weather and even frosts between now and mid-May, but I plan to enjoy this while I’ve got it.
I have a a lot of outdoor projects planned for this weekend, most of which are cleanup projects after the winter. As I walked around the yard the last couple of days making my plans, I couldn’t help but notice how many flowers and plants have either bloomed are almost ready to do so. As a continuation of my series of photos of the changing of the seasons, here is an update on what the flora around my house are doing in early Spring.
