I am most definitely not feeling spring this year. It doesn’t help that it’s been regularly cold and/or snowing right up until last week.
That was the view out of my front door last Tuesday. The date was May 19 and the temperature was about 2C. This was big, fat, heavy snow. Snow that stuck around on the trees and grass and cars for longer than a few moments. Snow that reminded me of November, not of May. Snow that has me doubting whether or not I should put bedding plants in this week, even though the weather is now seasonally warm and wonderful.
It is May 23, however. And if I don’t get crackin’ soon, I won’t be enjoying much in the way of fresh garden herbs and veggies this summer.
