What a weather year this has been! Three weeks ago, we were digging out of more than a foot of snow. A week after that, we were going around in tee shirts taking pictures of gray winter trees as the ice broke up on the rivers and canals. Yesterday, the temperature dropped into the teens and it was one really cold night.
And then, this morning, the sky is a brilliant, vivid blue. The sun is shining. No flowers … not yet … and it’s warmer. Not as warm as the tee-shirt weather of last week, but warmer. Pretty hard to figure out what any of this means. So here are the skies of the day.
Truly a most vivid blue and hopes of the rest of the world coming alive soon. Leaves won’t be back until May, but we should have lilacs and forsythia and other flowers sooner than that.
After which, will come the caterpillars … but in the meanwhile, I’m trying for an optimistic attitude.
