It is raining here and has been for several days.
Grey yet mild .
I am not complaining . It has been amazingly mild for this time of the year.
Average temperatures for this area of Ontario should be 12 C yet we have just gone thru 2 weeks of bright sunshine with temps of 20C.
In March we had no snowfall at all, a first in recorded weather. Very dry .
So I am happy to see the rain making everything green and grow. This weather has forsythia and magnolia trees flowering a month early.
In my garden the crocuses are done but the daffodils are flowering now.
My new shrub planted last fall; Chinese Azalea is just starting to flower.
These mauvy coloured blossoms are about 1 inch in width.
Look how tall the chives are!
A good 10 inches.
Bleeding heart has spread and growing vigorously.
See the rhubarb hiding behind the azalea!
My first planter of the season full of cheery pansies and a single primrose.
With mild temperatures so early makes one wonder what the summer will be like.
