A Gift

I have lived in Maine since 1982. I can honestly say that we have never had blooming trees in April.
The hydrangea is usually still asleep, and you never, never hear the sound of a lawn mower.


We are about three weeks ahead of schedule I would say.
An early spring.
I will take it.
Such a gift.

Fantastic. I love an early spring. Makes summer come that much faster ... which is all lemons, cloud watching and sand in the toes. Wonderful stuff.

We are experiencing the same thing in Michigan. It feels strange, but I, too, will take it!

Here in Colorado we are late for the end of April. I will even see snow on the ground tomorrow morning for my drive to work!!! But that is Colorado, as we say here in the west " wait 5 minutes and the weather will change". Love your flowers and flower bucket. Glad your back, missed you.
