Spring Arrived Early This Year

After the winter that wasn't, spring is here. But I'm not counting out that it might snow a couple more times. I was able to get out and clean off my flowers beds in the past couple of days. It seemed so early, but The Iowa Gardner said it was time because the new shoots were being deprived of light and air.  

We've had five days in a row of 80 degree weather so they have really taken off. In 2010 the daffodils were blooming on April 1, and in 2011 they bloomed around April 6.

The grass has really gotten green this past week. They're forecasting rain for several days this week, so I'm sure the lawn mower will be put to use soon.
