MARCH?

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 been careful what I wished for.  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.
