Spring Is About Four Weeks Ahead Of Schedule

Some Early Spring VisitorsWow the weather has been crazy last two weeks I thought it was summer. With record breaking temperatures as much as 35 degrees above average This is certainly nice but I hope we can sustain the weather. A freeze could really do some damage to tender perennials and stress out the trees and shrubs.

The grass is greening up and the spring bloomers are starting to bud up. In another week the trees will start to put on their leaves and it should become pretty active with the birds out doing the mating rituals and building nests. Cleanup from the winter is underway and should be completed by 2nd week of April if the weather cooperates. It is too wet today to do much because of heavy rains yesterday.

As you can see from the image on the right the geese seem to think it is okay though.
