On Thursday, my iPad said the temperature was 75. Daffodils and crocuses all over Baltimore bloomed. Ditto Okame cherry trees. The buds on Yoshinos cherry trees swelled, but they did not open to create the pink ballerina tutus that make Yoshinos famous.
I am glad the forecast is for cooler temperatures this weekend. They will refrigerate the blooms and keep them fresh, hopefully until I have a chance to rake up the leaves around them that blew in this “winter.”
Dried, brown foliage is not the best backdrop for the exuberance of spring daffodils.
