If the forecast is to be belived, we may have finally turned a corner weatherwise.
The past 2 weeks were hard on all the plants that had been lulled into "spring" by March's persistent above-average temps.
This past couple days with icy snow and temps in the teens put the lid on any blooms on my redbud or bridal veil spirea. Those buds are just mush (like the magnolia tree that was hit while in full bloom). What a mess.
Anyhoo, with all this sunshine right now, I'm hoping for the best.
I crawled out onto the sunroom roof and removed the skylight covers. I moved the geraniums and B&B salvia out into the sun after languishing in the sunroom for more than a week. And though today's temps are still shy of 50 out there, the bright sunroom is now above 70 and feels great!
So thankful was I to say goodbye to that freezing stuff, I celebrated and roasted a turkey this morning.
Nothing says thankful like turkey! Yum!
And with more outside days ahead, what's not to love about turkey salad, turkey sandwiches, and the ever popular turkey soup right at hand for lunches.
Yep, things are looking up (especially the temps). Woo and hoo!
P.S. Tried something new when I cut up the turkey. (CLICK HERE for the story.)
