Spring in February 2017

February 23, 2017

I'm sure that the Piedmont in NC is setting a record for several weeks of warm weather in Feb.  I'm accustomed to the odd day of warmth here and there, but not a string of them.  This morning I noticed my forsythia is already sending out green leaves.  Normally, the forsythia peaks in mid-March.  I also have daffodils blooming a month ahead.   Let's hope we have something left to bloom in March.   In the meantime,  I'm enjoying the spectacle of my neighbor's tulip magnolias against the forsythia.  I knew the lady who planted the magnolias, Patsy Chambers.  She left us a beautiful legacy.  Here's a follow up on the weather from a CNN story:  "What Happened to Winter?"  Over 4000 record highs have been reported.   Some say that Spring has arrived three weeks early.  I agree.
