I looked out the window yesterday when we finally had some sunshine and I just thought things looked greener. Every year there comes a day when the buds have begun to swell on the maples, and tree flowers are out, giving a yellow-green sheen to the woods instead of winter's grey Yesterday's view looked like that. Still unusually chilly for this time of year here, but the drive to unfold those leaves is as strong as ever!
Revisiting my post of May 9th, 2016, five years ago, I figure we're just about on track for spring, even though this year has seemed excessively cold well into the first week of May!
Such pretty blue skies! :-)ReplyDelete
It's due to go down to 2 here tonight.
Sorry I hadn't commented on your wildflower presentation earlier. It was very well done sir; how about another on the Bruce Trail or any other subject you might choose.ReplyDelete
One can only hope that you have indeed turned a corner. Hope you have a sunny weekend.ReplyDelete
Beautiful scene. It seems one things start to green up it happens pretty fast.ReplyDelete
I just finished watching the video. You have some amazing species - I wonder how many can be found here. Perhaps a visit to the farm and the woods behind it are in order.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday! Hope your weather is warm for the weekend.
It certainly looks like spring doesn’t it.ReplyDelete
It’s been really cold here in London. And as I write it is pouring with rain. We are only allowed to socialise out of doors and a friend is supposed to be coming round for a drink later today....
There was snow on the ground in Scotland this week, and more snow in Switzerland - we’d be there if we could. The government has just announced a list of countries we can visit for our summer holidays without having to quarantine when we get home. It includes New Zealand (which won’t let us in - very sensible), and South Georgia (do they even have a tourist industry?) & The Falkland Islands!!! Most Brits are desperate for sunshine for their holidays. You absolutely cannot rely on hot weather here, especially as last summer was boiling hot and lasted for months: it would be tempting fate to expect that twice in a row. You can see it is an all consuming topic here just now. Obviously running second to “when can we drink indoors?”
NB Since I was about 8 I have wanted to visit the Falklands to see the penguins. But not in winter.
Our Redbud tree is finally starting to show some color so despite the seeming lag, Spring is moving right along. Checking our Exeter radar sight first thing this morning I could see you were getting another blotch of rain.ReplyDelete
You have such a nice patio area. The chairs make it inviting. It will be so great to have flowers growing in that planter again. I am so tired of the cold down here.ReplyDelete
Nature has its own way of keeping us guessing. Most of the trees in the area are showing their finest greenery. There are some the buds don't come out until the end of May. They also have leaves until nearly Christmas.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy this Spring.
It's about time.
