When I chose last month to combine FEBRUARY - MARCH, concluding "March 21st is the turning point, the days will then be longer than the nights, and first spinach and daffodils won't be far behind", I was not anticipating the March we are currently experiencing. I should have more been careful making wishes. This March begs the question: "Is March the new April?"
Ed and I just returned from Colorado where the weather was unseasonably warm to record breaking warm weather in Boston. As I write midday the outside temperature is 72 degrees F and the daffodils are already beginning to bloom. Daffodils on the 19th of March. Most years I am delighted if a daffodil or two bloom by the first of April. At this rate, they will have bloomed and gone by then. Very scary.
