I have to say this has been one of the "best" springs I can remember. Our mud season seemed shorter. We didn't have several mud seasons due to surprise snow storms. I realize Mother Nature can still surprise us. However, I am loving the beauty that surrounds us this early April! I hope others are as well.

Can you believe it? Vermont spring that's actually spring, not a grey/brown/muddy season between winter and summer. I took this in Rutland early last week:


I took this one in Rutland yesterday:


After today's heat and sunshine, I'm sure we'll see much more bloomin' goin' on.

I'm glad you guys are enjoying your spring. We've officially moved to summer down here...85 degrees. BLECH! Thankfully it's going to cool down tomorrow...

This was a great winter (barely anything...good bye) and Spring has been nice. I've been here nearly 3 years and there really is not a mud season in our area. Then again, we have mostly paved roads.

I'm enjoying it but I hope we don't get a serious, heavy freeze. I see a lot of fruit and nut trees beginning to open up buds, etc., and a hard freeze will mean poor crops for many of them, bad for us and the wildlife. It's ironic that it's better to have a cold spring in some ways...

You haven't experienced the real Vermont until you've had to wear hip boots to walk down a road, and then thought maybe chest waders would have been better because you've sunk so deep.

This has been one of the best winter/springs I have experienced in Vermont in 15 years. A few snowstorms with very mild temps. We used an all time low in heating oil. We are now getting vegetables from our garden. With our mild temps we took a chance and planted seeds about a month and a half earlier than usual. The 80+ degree weather was a plus in getting things really growing here. With the warm weather and rain, we will have to mow the lawn soon.

It has been insanely mild. I heard the Concord area of NH had a high of 87F today. That is absolutely nuts for early April. I am with arctichomesteader. I have a bad feeling that the weather pattern will do a complete flip with lows below freezing again. Climatology is your friend. Frosts and freezes are possible until late May in many areas of VT and NH.

Until then, enjoy the heat.
