Is It Spring Yet?

 “The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”
–  Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926 

Last week, everyone had spring fever. This week, everyone is back inside because for the past few days, it has been very cold and annoyingly windy. Now we will get some lovely rainy days, some cold nights, and some not-very-warm days.

It’s okay, but makes us feel like we’ve gone backwards into winter again. All of our blooming tomatillo plants, tomato plants, lettuces, and new fruit trees are waiting for warmer weather in our garage. We even put a heater in there one night because it dipped into the 20s.

I think they are more content with the weather than we are 🙂
