It isn’t summer yet, but given the high temperatures we’ve been having, everything is growing and blooming.
Given how unusual this is, it does give me pause. How frequently and for how long will we start experiencing these high numbers? Food for thought.
In any event, I hope you’re enjoying your Friday lily pad. 🙂

It seems its been only 2 weeks since the snow left and already new spring leaves are out and blossoms coming on. Without rain soon, this will be a catastrophe. So many wildfires and evacuations already. Maybe we want La Nina back. Have a great Cinco de Mayo Lynette. Allan
Thank you, Allan. Yes, the same here. It’s very, very dry. There was a lot of snow, but it melted so quickly that it just ran off over the still-frozen ground rather than soaking in. There are going to be fires for sure. Nasty.
How long? Scientifically we are in a warming trend within an ice age so it will turn. Back in the 1970’s, we were afraid of the cooling trend!
Thanks Jacqui. Although I’m not a big fan of ice and the cold it brings (too many subarctic winters!), a little bit of that ice age might be a good thing right now! (Yup, never happy with the weather!) Cheers.
We had a cold April. This was the first week of nice temps. Nothing was blooming here until this week, but still slow going on the greenery. When I’m finished catching up on blogs, I’m going to take advantage of this and soak in some Vitamin D for twenty minutes.
Have a nice weekend, Lynette.
Thank you very much, Lori; you too. It’s so strange that our temperatures here in the subarctic are probably higher than yours (we had 26C today; 79F). Yes, take advantage of that vitamin D producing sun! Cheers.
These weird weather events does make you wonder whether this is the new normal. It’s a bit unsettling.
Agreed. We are definitely warming. Such an early spring with such high temperatures (some places are getting the low 30s) is abnormal for the subarctic. Even when we have 22 hours of sunny daylight, the high 20s is a lot more typical. The snow melted so quickly that with the ground still frozen, it didn’t soak in, so now everything is really dry. Fires aren’t far behind unless we get some sustained rain.
