Spring is here

In spite of a nasty cold northerly wind today, bringing yet more freezing temperatures, spring is definitely here in the Carolinas. 

It's welcome, for sure.  It's been a long cold winter for us; we're not familiar with the deep freeze (and snowy weather) that we've experienced this year.

But spring is still evident everywhere -- flowering redbuds and oaks, fruiting maples, flowering blueberries, and flowering winter annuals, too (not to mention all the Asian plants -- camellias, forsythias, and Japanese cherries).  The cherry trees are having a good year so far -- they're lovely -- we'll see after the mid-20's temperatures tonight.  Hopefully, they'll be fine.

I've just heard a few spring peepers, but lots of bird calls signalling that it's certainly breeding season!

  1. Too cold here. Too frozen. Even the maple sugaring has stopped.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
