Oh God I have that stuff. We are a month or so away from it hit here. I hope it comes while we are out of town. I will just clean the crap off: get our window cleaned and enjoy the rest of spring and summer.

I also left some pomegranates and figs in my storage shed to protect them from the cold. I guess its about 20 degrees warmer in there. The pomegranates have leafed out and the figs have brebas on them.
Why are your figs not in the ground? Are they some tropical kind?

Yes, it feels like late April - early May here.

So interesting to see comments from around the country and globe.

This one is hard to believe.

Hopefully we don't get a repeat of 2012 when all the apple and cherry blooms were fried by a late season freeze!

Nothing here yet but with these May and June like temps past few days Lilacs & Forsythias are waking up.


Polar air coming back into the U.S for early March. Not sure how long it will last

super cold here last night and will be again tonight plus cool all day, but our trees are still mostly in full bloom: it is so pretty and the bulb flowers are coming up like crazy: what a strange year. Las year was somewhat similar, but not quite as warm. The weather predictions here are about to say, it looks like not much chance for any real snow. That is ok, just means we get our gardens going sooner. The downside, more bugs.

My orange and lime trees are loaded with blossoms. The azaleas are about half in bloom. Some things are still sound asleep, like the hydrangea, which looks almost dead except for a few little leaves peeking out. I planted geraniums in a window box. My beets seeds are starting to come up.
Isn't it neat how a small sign of life can cheer a person up.

Jet stream dipping to the South but Eastern U.S still on the warm side of it. Like a Summer morning here.

Check out the Temps this morning. Notice where the cold is. Colder in Texas than Vermont!


And here were yesterdays Max and Min Temps for the U.S. 70s up to NY.


And lastly, current snowpack across the U.S

Some pictures from earlier today in London. Fairly typical for the end of winter.
