An Ode to March

A photo of Shannon Saia 

The grass grows

And it’s eighty degrees

The trees bloom

And unfurl delicate leaves

Then you wake

To azaleas frosted in snow

The thing about March is –

You just never know.

Shannon, your ode is definitely true this year in Nebraska. One week it's 70s with warm moist air and the next it's 20s with freezing rain and snow. We are starting to glide into a week of warm up again and by the weekend it will be in the upper sixties. My tulips and daffodils seem to have survived the large temperature swings. Have a great Spring garden day.
