We’ve broken all the records in Buffalo (it got up to 90 in some areas of WNY yesterday) and I wonder if others are experiencing some of the dryest, hottest days in April they’ve ever known.
It’s difficult to rant about such a thing—aside from the pleasure of being outside, I’m a month ahead on most gardening tasks—but it is disturbing.
The scene above depicts one of the few times I have ever seen daffodils standing upright in my front yard. Normally, these would be bending low with broken stalks or just laying face down in the mud, having succumbed to freezing rain or whatever. So this is the way they’re supposed to look—interesting.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on April 20, 2008 at 1:00 pm, in the category Ministry of Controversy, Shut Up and Dig.
