First day of spring?

That is a BIG question mark up there, because I really do question the arrival of spring.  Mother Nature has been cruel to us this winter and now that spring has arrived, or will a little after noon, she is teasing us with a warm spring-like day.  However in the weather forecast is still a four letter word….  On Tuesday is the possibility of more of that sh snow.

My crocuses were blooming before the heavy snow this week smashed them all.  Many of my daffodils are blooming, just the shady ones are staying in bud form waiting for a warm up.  Even the forsythias are ready to pop open, there very well could be some yellow out there by the end of the day today. 

And yet the weather man is still saying the S word.  Personally I will not be declaring spring until there is no more S in the weather forecast and it’s warm enough to not wear a jacket outside for a week straight….. or until the Spring Retreats start!
