All of a sudden it is in the high 80s... wasn't it snowing just last week? This spring had been strange.
But I have been watering my tiny garden each day to no avail: my hellebores and heuchra have been doing fine but nothing else but weeds have been popping up when I check each morning. Today, though, I had a pleasant surprise: my seeds have all begun to burst through the soil.
The lilacs along the side of my house are almost in bloom as well. They were tiny leaf buds last week!
