Fooling Mother Nature

February 23, 2017
71 degrees
Roanoke, Va.
"It's not nice to fool Mother Nature."
Periwinkle is blooming~

I can almost see it now.....the first day of spring....(March 20):
The ground will be covered with 15-20" of snow.
The winds will be billowing.
Icicles will be hugging the power lines.
The home fires will be burning.
(PunxsutawneyPhil saw his shadow, prompting a declaration of six more weeks of winter.)
If you were unable to be outdoors today, another opportunity will be available tomorrow, February 23, 2017!
That's right!
Weather forecasts predict temperatures to soar to 75 degrees.
Spring flowers/bushes/trees are popping up everywhere.
Japonica bushes are in full bloom

Purple plum tree is full of buds and flowers

Jonquils/daffodils are plentiful!

Heather bushes are loaded with blooms!

"It's not nice to fool Mother Nature."
But for now, I'll take the warm rays of sunshine.
I'll take this kind of February.
I'll not complain!
