… or so it seems. I’m not even sure if spring is going to arrive late, or have we missed it altogether?! The few nice springlike days we had, had kept us busy trying to keep-up getting what springtime work has to be done—barely in time for Memorial Day weekend.
On the bright side, the apple blossoms finally begun to bloom, along with lilacs and lilies! Spring hasn’t completely forsaken us!
However, the springlike days we had were pleasant, and in one case, hot this last Memorial Day weekend, with temps hitting the mid-80s!… but that was short-lived.
Yes, we would have expected a more pleasant spring; got our springtime work done, enjoyed better weather… but, we take it in stride; often complaining, and even joking about this sometimes inclement climate! Would I change it? No, not really. Perhaps a longer summer would be nice; that would make up for the lack of spring this year!
There’s an old saying/joke, “You’d have to be born in a climate like this, you wouldn’t move into one!” Maybe some truth to it, but I love the four seasons, and still will join in the protest against lack of spring.
And finally remember[!], we still have three weeks of ‘spring’ left before it is officially summer! Plenty of time left for more than a handful of spring days! Roger
