It’s been five days now since winter decided to return with lows near 20 and highs just above 40. I took this photo last Monday just before the cold set in.
I’ve kept my little veggie garden covered every night and it looks like most things have survived. Looking around the larger garden of wild natives and most things have survived but many do appear to have suffered a good bit of damage. Will be interesting to see how these damaged plants recover as spring returns. I’m also wondering about the frog and salamander eggs in our little pond which had a thin layer of ice a couple of mornings.
I’m looking forward to this week as the weather is supposed to warm a bit back towards “normal” but I cannot help but think that with climate change we can expect that normal is now a thing of the past.
