I would like to say spring has sprung but now summer is trying to replace spring
April 7, 2021 7:36am CST
It's supposed to be eighty outside today. We were supposed to get rain most of this week but it only rained a few hours on Monday so far. Today will be hot though as we have a job to finish. We're going after lunch because there are no trees to block the sun and the sun is in the high windows until after one in the afternoons. I'll try to remember to get a picture of how high the windows are there. We've had years where we didn't get much of a spring as it went from cold temps to hot. I don't know yet whether this year will be the same or not as it's still early. I thought I'd share my spring flowers with you. I found one I don't remember planting. I have two hyacinths. One is deep purple the other has three colors on the same plant; purple, pink and white. I put in one before the flowers were big also. I also have a daffodil and all three are now blooming. I'm getting my second vaccine this morning before lunch. So I took the day off in case I'm sick.

There have been many times we'd go from winter, straight into summer (or it felt like that anyway). This year seems to be warmer already than last year (we seem to have gotten way less rain and none in the forecast). It's fun to see the spring flowers pop up - I do love surprises. I hope all goes well with your 2nd dose (we just got our first on Saturday).

Our temps didn't get that high either and next week they may be back into the fifties. The second shot went well and my arm didn't hurt as long as it did for the first shot. The rain is going around in circles which means it could get stuck here for a while or move on quickly or not even show up.
@MarshaMusselman You spring flowers are very pretty. We had two weather seasons like you are describing where it went from winter to summer and skipped spring. It is hard to tell what is going on now. We have had some very nice days and right now it seems a little cool out and could warm up later. Good luck with your 2nd shot and hope you do not get side effects. I can see why you prepared yourself for the shot by taking the day off. Take care and I hope all goes well and your foot gets better too.

So far I've had boo side effects from the second shot and I don't I'll have any tomorrow either. My foot might be doing better it's hard to tell but I've found some compression socks that for better than what I've bought before.

It's been warm here too, in the 80s mostly but I like it hot anyway so no problem for me. Although I don't have colorful flowers at least all my trees and vines are showing their green leaves. Yep, Spring sprung and then some.
