Woke up to see the grounds covered in snow, and wasn’t really be surprised. The world has not been playing by any expected rules, and Mother Nature has joined the game.
I kept seeing articles instructing people not to be too eager cleaning up their gardens, as the insects need those roots and shoots to survive for the coming season. Apparently we need a consistent length of time with the temperature well established in a warmer range. The -6 C of this morning is not in that range.
We had one beautiful day with short sleeve temperatures and sunshine. I sat outside just taking it all in. Comfy in my chair I leaned back, closed my eyes and listened. To the variety of birdsong, the neighbours children laughing as they play, the dog barking at the squirrels running along the top of the fence.
That day was followed by cooler temperatures and gloomy days of rain.
The only predictable thing about the weather is it’s unpredictability. Maybe May will be better.
