APRIL IS ALMOST SPRING – Marilyn Armstrong

FLOWERS IN APRIL – FOTD – 04/22/2019

Speaking of changing, what a month! For that matter, what a couple of months this has been. Crazy weather.

It has been raining relentlessly forever, it seems. We get a couple of nice days … then a week of gray weather and pouring rain. No worries about dry rivers this year!

Not that crazy isn’t an inherent part of our New England weather. Our weather is unpredictable, especially as winter tries to turn into spring — and usually fails, until May when suddenly, it’s summer.

It was lovely here Monday and Tuesday. Blue skies, warm weather and the song of the Carolina Wren can be heard all around the property. Today the gray weather showed up again, but it’s not supposed actually rain again until Friday and Saturday. But no sunshine, either.

Tomorrow, there will be rain and wind — but after that, I’m hoping to clean up the garden before the rest of the flowers open. It’s hard to rake when the daylilies are blooming. And half the rhododendrons are dead and need cutting back.

  1. This is one of my favourite times of year (if it didn’t rain so much and was a little warmer). The tulips, daffodils and crocuses are coming along nicely. It seems that whenever I have the time to go into the garden it rains.
    Lovely bouquet Marilyn…


  2. Beautiful photos again, Marilyn. Your flowers and birds are enough to lift anyone’s days. Hope you get the weather to get out in the garden soon. 🙂


      1. Oh poor you! And it’s been glorious since last Wednesday over here – I almost feel guilty! Hope it perks up soon. We’ll probably be back to rain by then. 🙂


  3. Love the picture of the woodpecker at the feeder. The weather here has been weird too. Either pouring with rain for days, “unseasonably cold” or “unseasonably warm”.


      1. We’ve had quite a bit of rain too as well as bits of sun. My daughter and fam. Are in hardy, they just had 2 5.4 earthquakes 10 meters down. Pretty shallow. My daughter said she didn’t feel it.
