It’s been another week of yo-yo weather. We had normal temperatures last weekend, then 18 degrees above normal midweek and 10 degrees below normal yesterday.
A cold front blew in on March 1 but during the sunny gap between thunderstorms it was so warm that I took off my jacket and sweater while looking for signs of spring.
The leaves were out on an ornamental crabapple, above, and the crocuses were in full bloom.
The honeysuckle leaves, an invasive species, had grown considerably.
In case you’d forgotten, the buds were just opening on 14 February. Here’s the same plant, before and after, 15 days apart.
We had June in February. It’s January in March this morning.
