The extended winter is still in force here in Central Maine. We haven't gotten above 47 degrees in the past two weeks and we're not supposed to until Saturday. The foot of snow dumped on us last Friday is still here and still deep in places, although it is melting away. Slowly. Very, very slowly.
But things are growing out there.
|I'm cold, lady. Where's Spring?|
|Stay away. I'll prick you.|
|Room with a View|
|Soon to be Daffy|
|Oh, to be a Hyacinth|
The three Hyacinth bulbs I planted last year are also sprouting. I bought those to brighten up the kitchen last year and now they'll continue to brighten our yard every Spring.
So, things are not as bleak as I may have been making them to be. I'm just very winter-weary and eager for real Spring temperatures to arrive. It would also be nice to be snow-free for more than 24 hours.
