I am wondering whatever happened to the notion that Spring follows Winter. This year, we seem to have had about a week of Spring, followed hard on its heels by Summer--temperatures steadily now in or near 90. Flowers are popping up all over and then disappearing. Yesterday, our little wisteria (little only because I keep trimming it to avoid having it consume our entire front garden)  popped solidly into its full bloom.  So, we now have tulips, cherry blossoms, wisteria and azaleas, all competing for attention.

Cherry Blossoms

The cold winter seems to have produced abundant spring cherry blossoms. Our weeping cherries sprang into full bloom suddenly and they are wonderful to behold.
