I noticed that things are beginning to bloom around here! :) (Taken with my Samsung cellphone.)

Winter never came, so spring is not quite as exciting this year. :D

Supposed to be close to 60F today up in Minnesota.

These should be popping up soon:

Feels like we never had winter around here.....3rd warmest winter on far!

Low 60's today.
But mid-30's on Thursday and Friday with rain/snow showers.

It's been a bit chilly here the last few days or so, but I see warmer temperatures in the forcast for this week, so should be a good week weatherwise.

They're saying upper 60's to mid 70's here. :)

0C - yes - that is spring

Supposed to be close to 60F today up in Minnesota.

so no snow - and likely looking at severe drought conditions ...?

i checked - i am just above mn - and should get to 60 in about a week...

holy crap - but - there is always those late snow storms to watch out for...

Celt, I can't get your photos to load. Is everyone else having trouble with that, too?

Got into the low 80s here yesterday. It's a cool and very windy 54 here at the moment. Winter and Spring are going at it.

And hey, pretty flowers!

Try it now. :)

Ah, works now. Thanks. Jonquils are going full tilt around here, too. The state park will be having its jonquil festival in the next week or two.

Found this little guy at the edge of the pasture Saturday. Sure sign of spring.

Only things blooming here are a few brave forsythia on southern exposures, but the signs are in the air.

Dangit, I was out most of the day, & just saw this thread. Some nice pics there. :thmbsp: I don't think it got much above 40F here today, it was downright chilly, but they're calling for 60F or better tomorrow. :thmbsp:

Tulips and other things are in bloom now. It's been very wet and warm here and that's just what the flowers want!

Wish I had some pictures of cherry trees to share... looking great here in the District... Got a couple on the roof of my building, and they are in full bloom and already starting to drop..

Spring is for sure here in the south, the dogwoods, azela's, peach trees, are already in full bloom and yesterday all the flowers on the dogwoods were falling, my yard looked like it was snowing with all the white flowers falling from the trees. But the big pecans, still have not gotten their leaves yet.

Some more...Azaleas and Japanese Leaf Maple in the front yard and Dahlias and Geraniums in the planter on the back deck...

Must be nice. :tongue: ;) I was just reading about how so many parts of the country had record warm temps for March, but out here, it's been the opposite, wet & cool. It's supposed to get up into the high 50s today, but ONLY today, then back to the rain for us. :tears: ;)

04-02-2012, 11:27 PM
It's 80-90 here, the trees are flowering and beautiful, but my allergies are driving me insane. Already running our air conditioning and chasing wasps off our front porch. UGH!

Well, we are well into summer here. They are predicting 101F tomorrow with a heat index of 106F!
I planted these Asiatic Lillies last week and they have begun to bloom, so I thought I'd share.

Pretty flowers.

We may miss summer again this year. It' 54 and cloudy today.

05-26-2012, 12:46 PM
The sun's out right now, which is nice, but we have rain in the forecast for about the next week. Oh wait, that's normal. :D ;) I enjoy your pics, Celt, they help us soggy people feel better, LOL. ;)
