Funny things happen up here in the Great White North when the sun comes out! We have had our first spring day today with the temp getting (I think) even into the 60’s. You can feel everyone’s spirits lifting, the load lightening, and it is just plain wonderful! When it gets into the 50’s here, people start wearing tank tops and shorts just to celebrate. So no telling what will happen this weekend because it is supposed to hit 70 on Sunday.
So I got our porch chairs out of hibernation, and I think we will fire up the grill tomorrow. My forsythia still hasn’t bloomed yet, but it opened April 16 in 2001 and March 24 in 2005. We obviously missed the March date this year, but maybe we’ll beat the 2001 date. You may wonder how in the world (or why) I keep track of such things, but my daughter Rachel made me a lovely gardening notebook for Christmas 1999, and it has a perfect spot to record the April activities in my garden. By May I no longer have time to be writing things down because I’m too busy outside trying to get the place in shape.
Hope your weekend is lovely and sunny!
