So back in January/February we had a lot of May-like weather. Well, now the weather is doing the other side of the swap. Since we had spring weather in winter, we shall now have winter weather in spring. Since this morning, it has snowed about four inches (judging by the pile of snow on my truck) of heavy, wet snow. My caragana bushes are not fans of this weather. I don’t think there are too many plants out there today that are fans of the snow.
Earlier this evening, once the heavier snowfall had finally stopped, turning into a light snow shower mixed with rain, I ventured outside. I sincerely hope that my saskatoon bushes will still bear fruit, although that remains to be seen. The caraganas are in full bloom with their little yellow flowers, and even though lots of the snow had melted off, there was still some left. And I hope they regain their proper shape, and don’t remain all slumped over. Now we need some, or lots, of sunshine.
