I have a Lenten Rose in my Binghamton, New York - area garden. It's been trying to bloom for some six weeks.
Bloom where you are planted, the saying goes. But what if you keep trying, and can't?
It gets covered by snow. It gets uncovered. It gets covered by snow.
Now, we are in a most unseasonable warm wave. By "we", I mean much of the United States. Today, we are preparing to experience possible record warmth, on this day that, years ago, would have been a Federal holiday - the birthday of George Washington. 60 (15.5 C) wouldn't be a record, but it would be close. This is not February weather. Except, in our new normal, it apparently is.
Could spring be on its way? Or is this another false alarm?
