We awoke to a dusting of snow on the ground again this morning and the temperature a raw and cold -8 C (20F).
Welcome to April ~ the most fickle month of the year
here in the Maritimes.
We had lovely sunny and mild days on the weekend, then Monday was wet snow/rain and cold, Tuesday sun/cloud mix and zero (32).
And tomorrow and Friday will be above freezing again.
Up and down and back up again.
These dogwood twigs were cut late last fall for Christmas
decorating. I left these in the garage over the winter and brought
them inside two weeks ago to force. I put them in the old cream
bottle with some warm water and sat it on the windowsill in the dining room where it gets the afternoon sun as well as heat from the baseboard heater. They sprouted green leaves a few days later.
It's so nice to see some actual green leaves indoors!
I'm on the lookout for pussy willows growing in the ditch now.
Did you try to force any branches for some spring colour?
How did it go?
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!
I hope you are enjoying Springier weather where you live.
