Maybe it will warm up now

Portage, WI(Zone 5a)

Sat. night it was 39. Last night (Sun.) 33. I was up before dawn just to check on things. Everything outside covered in burlap. When it hit 34 I got out the garden hose and sprayed it all down. All seems OK. Yes, we had a bit of sleet Sat. But, my plum tree has just started to bloom, apples on the way, so maybe the timing was good. Gene

My thought is that Mother Nature is having menopause issues...or reacting to climate change. Talked with gardener yesterday that has a garden tour coming through and her hostas aren't even leafed out yet. The only ones that I have leafed out are the ones sent from my sis in PA...
Feeling lucky that only have a few daylilies with spring sickness. The cold blast a few weeks ago took care of the hydranga blooms...I was taking a chance though at planting them (unknown variety) but will still complain.
Hope that we end up in the 70s until Nov!!!

Today was quite warm and humid but just a few days ago, I felt like I needed gloves! Then there's the rain problem. I'm pushing myself to get all my vegetables in between thunderstorms. I finally had to come in the day before yesterday because I was soaked to the skin. Despite all of this, things are growing, at least in my native plant garden, The vegetables, not so much.

I had to put the comforter back on the bed Sunday night. And the heat kicked on very early Monday morning. I can't remember a colder, wetter spring! What a contrast from last year. Can't wait for the fungal diseases to start!

Yes, cold wet Spring. Is it summer yet? High here will not make 70 for another 3-4 days.
