Cherry Blossoms

CherryBlossoms150307

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom now, three weeks earlier than last year. Last year it was March 27 when they opened up. They smell like baby powder. It’s been a very warm winter and spring. I looked back through my photos and found dates when the cherries bloomed before. They show what an unusual spring this is:

2015 – March 7
2014 – March 27
2013 – March 30
2010 – March 18
2008 – April 7 (it snowed March 30)
2007 – March 29
2006 – March 25

In the hoop house, the lettuce I planted last week is starting to pop out of the ground.
