In like a lion


I've read we should treat this unseasonably warm weather as a gift.
I've also read to never, ever trust March.

There's no denying that these exceptionally warm days have put
some spring in my step. What's not to like about sleeping with
the window wide open in March?

I also remember a heavy May frost two years ago that stunted
the growth of the leaves on all of the deciduous trees and
wielded a heavy sword against the strawberry crops.

Perhaps it's a cautious enjoyment with a little bit of  of head shaking
 thrown in, especially as we head for record setting temps in the high
twenties tomorrow. (Low eighties in Fahrenheit.)

In like a lion, out like June.


~Happy Spring Friends!~

We've been enjoying a warm March too. I don't dare put the snow shovel away either. I figured once I did that, it would snow for sure!

Judy said...

I can hardly believe it's March with the weather we've been having too. I'm waiting for it to be pulled out from under us tho :)

Anke said...

It feels like summer here with temps in the upper 80's. Like you, I'm a little leery though, not knowing what kind of weather is still ahead of us...

After a few days of 80-degree weather, it's returned more spring-like here with drizzle and cooler temps. We really need some moisture, so I'm actually rather happy. :)

Ally said...

I like your advice about never trusting March. I hadn't thought of that until now, but can see that this super warm weather might be a sneaky trick.

Still, I so very much want winter to be over that I'm going to pretend that March is trustworthy! *la-la-la- i don't hear you*

Pat said...

I think (hope) it's time to put that snow shovel away!

Deb said...

Is that snow? In Ontario???

Ok, so you all can take your usual colder, wintery weather back now :) We've been getting snow, snow flurries and all of that fun stuff... still! I'm ready for some 80's... I'll even take just the 60's!

Happy spring!

I love how you processed this photo--it's gorgeous! We've had temps in the 80s all last week so you can imagine our surprise when yesterday it only reached 45--March can never be trusted!

Today is the first day of spring....it has snowed more than two inches and the snow is still falling---well, it's blowing sideways. Our snow shovels stay out for too many months, although we've had very little snow this winter.

Lynne said...

Me . . . no trust for March either . . . not spring at all . . . 85 today IN THE SHADE . . . wouldn't that be summer?

We have had such lovely weather, but I wouldn't mind a little snow! :) xo Heather

Kelly said...

lol..love the connection!!!!!

Michelle said...

I am a little wary of this weather myself. I would hate to see a heavy, late frost damage so much. That has happened before.

Dog Trot Farm said...

Happy Spring Andrea, I too am wary of March and this "summer like" weather. I am tempted to plant the peas, but know if I do, it will SNOW! Blessings, Julie.

I like being able to have my window open at night to catch the cool breezes. I have a screen, so I dno't catch gross bugs, either :) :)

Okay, that photo of the kitty cat is really, really adorable in the extreme :) :)

Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

We had that same late frost two years ago. Our Rose of Sharon's never bloomed that year :(
I love your little lion! She has the look of "I'm busy, very, very,busy!"
xo, misha

It is so interesting to hear about weather around the world. It is cold and rainy here in the Pacific Northwest. I love how the cat is coming toward you in the photo. Thank you for sharing and for linking up with Tones on Tuesday!

I know, while part of me is rejoicing the other part is wondering what lies ahead weather-wise. We were discussing at school today how this kind of weather makes us think that summer (and summer vacation) is just around the corner, when really it is several months away.

Happy Spring to you!! I love this edit.
