…rather than tulips. Perhaps slogging is a better term; definitely rubber boots weather!
Thank goodness for an assortment of blooming tulips and daffodiles to welcome the onset of Spring in western Oregon, which greeted us with more strong rains.
Three days of no rain let the previous puddles drain away, and provided us with a chance to dash into the garden to do more pruning, throw on some fertilizers, weed, and minor transplanting. Even a hike into the forest as we felt an energizing rise in temperature.
Equinox today bestows us with more puddles. It has been a day for inside work, cleaning and refilling the bird feeders, reading, cooking, and contemplating future strategy for garden projects (like re-establishing medicinal plants I used to have).
Kind of a “retro-spring” in my mind; reminiscent of winter/springs a couple of decades ago, before the warmer, drier shifts of the last few years. In that sense many of us locals don’t mind “global warming”.
Welcoming more noticeable light to our northern hemisphere days, while knowing it is harvest-season in the southern hemisphere! May we/you be bountiful in all areas!
