spring

This is cherry blossom tree (American not Japanese) in my front yard which began to bloom yesterday. It’s been a great spring; cold and wet but lasting. Yesterday it was 76 degrees but today it’s 55 degrees. This lets the flowers last larger.

Even the cat is glad to be outside.

I made beef stew yesterday because it was supposed to be cold and I knew that cooking it would warm up the house. Little did I know when I bought the ingredients that it would turn out to be warm outside.

There is something terribly wrong with temperatures in the 60s on February 17. People are wearing flip flops and the crocuses are shooting up out of the ground. While on a walk, I found some forsythia branches by the road and brought home a sprig with some blooms. Forsythia have always been the harbingers of spring for me – but not in February! What will it be like in July?

Forsythia in February
