That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty."
~ William Shakespeare
In this neck of the woods the weather has morphed from winter into summer... at least for the last couple of weeks. We have had several days in the mid to upper 70's along with rain and just a bit of wind. Beware the ides of March, however... today it is cold with the high only around 49 and with more wind, I think it is the back side of that Nor'easter. My crocus have never come up, but the daffodil have been peeking through the ground since Christmas and began to bud back in February when we had all our snow. Now, they are opening, a full two weeks earlier than I expected and just in time for more freezing night temperatures. Ah... Spring in the mid-Atlantic... never a dull moment. Now we wait to see if what we planted in the fall takes hold for the spring. Can you say... anticipation?
