Nope, still not Spring

SAMMY

Nope, it's still not Spring here. It lookded nice out this afternoon, but when Mommy opened the door, it was COLD COLD COLD. The according to the weafer man, it was about 43 degrees out then. Mommy says the Two-lips leaves have frost burn on them. Now, to me, that sounds stoopid. How can somefing freeze AND burn at the same time? I think her brain just froze from the cold, and she's gone insane. But she doesn't think that they are going to bloom. I hate to remind her, but they didn't bloom last year eifer. They were just leaves that poked up. The croak-us-is came up and then died the same day. I don't think we're going to have Spring this year. I think I'll go hide under the covers on the big bed.

Yeah, we have tender green things poking up in the flower bed that are burned like that too. Mom found some leaves & piled them on the top of them for protection till it really warms up! But we got to 50 today, and it was pretty nice in the sun!

It's been a mixed-up spring! It was beautiful and warm and then it got cold and we had snow! I wish it would make up its mind and stay warm.

If your tulips come up but don't bloom, the bulbs need to be dug up. The original big bulb might have had 'babies'. These get seperated and all of them put back in the ground. Plus you gotta fertilize.

It got cool but not quite cold here too. Weird cuz it was way hot last week. It got almost up to WAY too hot. Mom says it was 86. I don't like it so hot cuz then I gotta listen to Mom talkin bout melting. Just hearing her talk bout it makes me feel too hot.

It's been rather cool here too and wet--even a bit of snow in late February, which is unheard of.. and suddenly now it's wet and warm. Poor plants. The bed sounds like a good idea

We are having weird weather still too. Saturday was beautiful sunshine, though chilly, and my humans were out all day gardening. Yesterday it poured with rain and was REALLY cold and my mum got back into her big winter jerseys. She is disappointed with the daffodils in pots, she planted 10 bulbs in each pot and has only got 2 flowers in each pot.

Your part of the country is very nice, I remember that from a visit some years ago, but right there on the lake it's just too cold and windy for too long every year. Just like northern Ohio (where Pat and I used to live) -- winter was from November through April, then it got summer-hot and humid overnight.

My Bunny Mommy bought merry-golds one year because Bunny Daddy told her they were virtually impossible to kill. Boy was he wrong!

It got warm again in New York City so maybe you need to take a field trip here.

Hi, Sammy & Miles! Today was definitely Spring here! Mom's croak-us-is are blooming for days an I fink the two-lips and daffy dills are next. Nothing burned by frost so far. Mom says there was a bunny family that ate all her two lips 1 year, but we only seed 1 bun so far this year. Oh, an it didn't look like Mrs. Sniffles - it's brown an not as purty as her.

How is Sammy doing?
