last day of...winter?
Today, the last day of winter, temperatures will reach the mid-eighties in middle Tennessee. Forecasts for the first day of spring are 85 degrees. It would seem we have moved from a mild winter directly into summer. Except that my allergies are feeling every bit a Tennessee spring, the pollen count is 333.
Over the weekend I planted a second blueberry, Jersey. And weeded for an hour, mulched, and watered. I also discovered in my evidently too 'secret' garden that the Epimediums are in full bloom! The packed garden center was a welcome site indeed. By all accounts, spring has sprung!
