My flowers near the house were always up a month ahead of the ones by the street due to heat from the coal stove leaking through the foundation. :D

The calendar might say it is spring, but the thermometer says other wise.

This was from lunchtime - it is colder now.

26* here,supposed to drop to 18* tonite..
Saturday's high is supposed to be 66* & 50* for Saturday nite,then days will be in 50's,nites in 30's & 40's.
It is very likely that my handfed will go cold Friday into Saturday.

Kinda hard to think Spring here today,hi temp of 38*, Windy with gusts up to 50 mph & still lots of those white patches on the ground.
