Last week, my tulip came out. I say it singularly because some years, it's been the one tulip or even none. This year spring has been so early, windy, and dry. The weather pattern seemed stuck on warm with gale-force winds sucking moisture from everything. I even watered my tulips a couple of times. The water sort of stayed on top of the soil and I don't think it sank in much. The rhubarb was up and I carried some water to it. The recent snow-rain mix is a boon. Wildfires can be contained and fewer will be started. It's early enough for farmers seeding, for gardeners. The lawns are all green and the poplar leaves are out. We now have a great start to an early growing season. It needs to warm up and when it does, the plants will pop. My hope is that now it has rained/snowed, we'll have rain later on and the drought we feared won't develop.
