The Garden In Sprinter
March has been a bust; well-below normal temperatures (15 days in a row of temperatures below the norm), with day after day of cold, dry, cloudy weather. We have been marooned between spring and winter, in sprinter. Finally this afternoon the sun came out, and the temperature edged above fifty degrees. The bees reappeared, so eager that they seemed to hardly alight on a squill or a crocus, before they were off again to the next bloom. Many small plants raised their faces in wonder at this strange light in the sky... hopefully tomorrow they'll hear their first thunder. Above is Anemone nemerosa, nestled under an azalea.
