Just as spring got going, so did our temperatures. In the sudden heat, spring kicked into high gear.
We went from crocuses on April 7 to snow on April 24, and then it was back to spring.

to late blooming daffodils on May 7....
My irises have buds. My lilacs are in full bloom. (Hopefully they will last long enough for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day tomorrow.
And now, this morning, we are under a frost advisory. Parts of our area are flirting with frost producing temperatures. Our tender plants are under cover this morning.
You have to understand winter withdrawal. After month after month of snow, everything was blooming at once. Last Friday, I came close to taking a picture of a forsythia blooming next to an early lilac, but my iPhone was too full of photos. You would have to be a flower gardener to understand that forsythias and lilacs don't usually bloom together - at least, they don't here in upstate New York.
The golden rays of sun and the warm temperatures make you want to dance, and to forget there was ever such a thing as below zero temperatures.
Now, cold weather says "one last time!" This teaches us that nothing in life is permanent. (And, that you shouldn't plant your tomatoes too early - which we didn't.)
How is your weather?
