Irises Peeking Through Late Snow
The adage is “in like a lamb, out like a lion”, and vice versa. This year in downstate Illinois gentle spring rains coaxed my irises up at the beginning of the month, and a late snow put a blanket on them this past weekend. It is not very cold so no harm done, in fact, the extra moisture will give my irises a boost.
Every year of my almost seventy-year long life, I have heard people say, usually with trepidation, oooh, the weather is strange this year. So my takeaway is that the weather is strange very year. And, we can count on March and April to be particularly unpredictable.
