A really wonderful day today, around 70*, light breeze, mostly sunny, the grass is growing as I watch..
Funny thing about this weather. Last year, the Cleveland pear trees and the weeping cherry trees budded out, and bloomed at the same time, This year, right now, the pear trees are in full bloom, a bit thin, but blooming. The weeping cherry tree has zero, nadda, nothing. I was concerned that the -20's* might have killed the trees, but I can see tiny, buds, on the branches, the buds are about 1/8" diameter, and about 1/4" long, I can't tell if they are blooms or leaves. From the color, I'm thinking leaves.
The maple trees, the river birch, and the japanese red maple and pear tree are both budding out.
OK, the sun is still fairly high in the sky, so I'd better go get some more work done.
