Weather's been funny

This is the year we are really beginning to wonder if global warming has "hit" us. All the regular schedules for our spring blossoms are out of whack. Our magnolia tree bloomed early, in January, and then the rains began in earnest. The peach tree bloomed, then the tulips started to come up. While the tulip buds still are upopened, the lilac burst into blossom. Spring mustard and summer poppies are both blooming in the grass, side by side.

While waiting for my tulips, perhaps in vain, I snapped these at the farmer's market.

In the meantime, we have become familiar with thunder & lightening, cloud formations and driving through standing water.
