We had two and a half weeks of pure blissful weather. I’m talking about 3 days hitting 80°F! In central Pennsylvania, that doesn’t happen in winter… not even towards the end. Now that Spring is officially here, the weather is back to what it should be cool and rainy. The winter heat wave granted us an early Spring (take that Phil!).
The local blooming trees bloomed 3-4 weeks before normal. For the last three weeks I wistfully watched my neighbors’ trees blooming throughout our development, some even have passed their peak. This week our cherry tree timidly began to show some blooms.
The grape hyacinths are gathered by the masses all over our lawn…
And I had even planted a white and purple mix of grape hyacinths last fall.
A plethora of purple periwinkle hugs the front banks…
My azaleas are showing small buds, almost ready to reveal their mystery color and the allium foliage are proudly popping up from the earth. I’m still trying to find the gems during the first Spring at our new house.
How is your season changing?
