news flash

We interrupt the Winter Olympics to bring you this news flash - it's spring and moving quickly towards summer.

My crocuses are blooming (ignore the dead looking cranesbill geranium):

My white bleeding heart is over a foot tall and you can see branches with the "hearts" on them:

My daffodils will be blooming soon:

My neighbour's daffodils are already blooming.

And do you know what else? Hubby is outside cutting the lawn. We've lived here for almost 10 years and the earliest he's done the first cut is April. It's Feb 18th for crying out loud! I was on the phone to my sister complaining and she just laughed at me. You can't even see the ground where she lives because there's at least 2 feet of snow covering it.

Makes me wonder if we're going to get a super hot summer this year. I am grateful that we've upgraded to vehicles with a/c.

Same here too! I cannot believe it. Spring irises are up, so are the narcissi, blossom is on the trees and the snowdrops are over...very strange!
