Progression of Spring – April Fool snow

The progression of spring is one of magisterial slowness. The April Fool snow did have the advantage of showing us where we could expect the spring flood to appear.

The snow didn’t last too long and it didn’t even look that wet anymore in mid-April. The slow progression of spring.

There were considerable rains  which started things greening up, but also brought the flood. This shows the progression of spring took a leap, but then stepped back for a rest.

In spite of the rains which leave the area around the shed underwater, it looks like spring is firmly ensconced throughout most of the garden. The primroses have loved the rain and welcomed new plants from the Bridge of Flowers and Greenfield Garden Club plant sales.  The lilacs have gone by but the roses are budding up nicely. It looks like OSO Easy Paprika will be the  first to bloom

Now, if the progression of spring would just take us into the sunshine. I am expecting a BOOM! of blossom.

    I just read an article that stated the cold wet spring out East was detrimental to the Horseshoe Crabs and migrating shorebirds. Such as it is your garden looks like it has maintained through out all and is beginning to prosper. Hang in there, the sun is bound to shine soon.

    Look forward to seeing your Easy Paprika in bloom! Also glad you haven’t been discouraged by the flood.
