What a Difference a Week Makes

Last week on the patio, when Clif was toasting our blog friends Derrick and Jackie, this is what the backyard looked like. (Note the flower bed just behind Clif and how it is completely covered with snow.)

But what a difference a week makes in Maine. Yesterday, here is what the patio looked like. The weather was so warm that Clif didn’t even need to zip his jacket.

By gum, my flower bed is nearly free from snow, and I’ll begin working on it this week.

When spring comes to Maine, it comes in a rush. One day, it’s winter, and the next week the snow has shrunk to the point where gardening has become more than a dream.

Still not many flowers in central Maine, but soon, soon.

    1. Lots of snow in Maine, that’s for sure. Not unusual for northern New England. It just stayed a few weeks earlier than it usually does. But spring ding-a-ling is here!

      1. Ah yes, the children are definitely not pining for snow now they’ve had a taste of the spring sunshine πŸ™‚ I’m glad you’re getting some gardening weather now too xxx

      2. I’m sure your children are ready to play, play outside. I’m ready, too, except my play involves yard work and gardening. But I love it. Ah, spring!
