First Flowers Of The Season


Week of February 19, 2017.  On this day the temps where almost 70 degrees.  Although I am usually thrilled when the temps turn warm, this February we have had many warm and sunny days and everything is blooming at least two weeks early.  I write about my concerns in my journal.  Quiet Time Journal: Tomorrow Is Not Guaranteed

The forsythia bloomed last week, the first thing to bloom in my garden.  I do not care for the bush, it grows like crazy and becomes too big too fast, but I do like that they are the first bloom.  I keep one in a pot, where it stays contained.  I then ignore it for the rest of the year, but it is so hardy it survives.

Despite my concerns of losing everything when the weather returns to normal, the blooms do help me shake off the gloom of winter.
