In this part of southwestern Ontario spring has been slow to appear. Temperatures have been running several degrees below normal. Ordinarily at this time of the year we should have daytime temps of 13C. and lows of 2C. So far this month the daytime temp is struggling to get to 8C and at night falling well below freezing.
The good news is for the next few days we will be having above normal temps with highs of 20C. and lows of 4C.
Lots of warm sunshine.
To say I am looking forward to the warmth of the next few days is a huge understatement...
This area is lacking adequate rain/ snow in March and April, it has been very dry. Over the winter we had an abundance of snow , guess Mother Nature is balancing things.
In my minuscule garden I have starting; sprouts of Rhubarb, poor thing is still waiting for its final spot..
Rhubarb, still in a huge pot.
My back yard is still mud , no topsoil or sod . Builder is saying May, praying that is true , my green thumb is itching.
Right now I have a strip by the back of the house holding a
Chrysanthemum ,it made it through the winter!
My gifted surprise day lily is showing signs of life.
Wonder what it will be like when it flowers?
Spring colour is showing in the front garden , the coral bells,
the lime green mound spirea has to be trimmed of dead branches
Japanese maple made it safely through with out any damage under its burlap cover
Already the crocuses have gone and now the promise of tulips and alliums to come.
