More Spring Flowers Facing a Chilly Weekend
We noticed today that the early spring crocus, the yellow crocus, joined the daffodils in their out of season blooming. Patches out in the fruit tree orchard were blooming today. We're in for a chill this weekend, with temperatures dipping back into the seasonal mid 20s over the weekend. I wish I could reason with my plants and explain to them that they're up to early. I hate the fact that they're putting all this effort into blooming when the winter weather is just going to nip the beautiful flowers. But plants cannot be reasoned with. They just are. And nature, as I am fond of quoting, is resilient.
