This Bud's For You

There are quite a few things that have been peculiar this year. It's been colder, rainier and windier than normal. It seems that is catching up with everything. One thing I could always count on was that the flowering cherry tree in my yard would be in full bloom on April 15th of every year. It is now two weeks later and the tree still looks like this. Not a flower on it.

It's pretty drastic when nature is held back for 1/24th of a year. Now don't get up on the soap box about global warming unless you have stopped using fossil fuels, and electricity all together. The climate is changing which is something we will all need to adapt to, or not. I'm just finding it all very interesting how the planet is reacting to conditions be they natural or man made. There is always an equalization taking place. Nature abhors a vacuum and nature will move things around seeking an equilibrium and we get to see it happen before our eyes.

I noticed that there were no pussy willows until at least 2 weeks later than normal and it now looks like the lilacs will be way behind schedule as well.

I am definitely on the lookout for some place with less lethal weather. It's getting downright dangerous out here in the plains.

Nature abhors a vacuum ... which explains dogs' reaction to them.

Just send your check to Al Gore and everything will be O.K.
