To say that that our weather is freakishly warm is putting it mildly...we are within two degrees of breaking the all-time record highs....
It has been HOT ~ around 80 degrees....for weeks now! All of our flora and fauna are confused; this beautiful Japanese Magnolia should not be blooming or budding out until APRIL!!!!!!!
Azaleas are in full bloom ~ Fred is happy about this!
While I do envy the beautiful pictures of snow that I see on my favorite northern blogs, this "Spring within Winter" has been quite pleasant!
Those blue buds are my sweet olive ...they don't usually bloom until May! Everything is discombobulated....and no wonder...it is literally 25 degrees warmer then it should be right now.
Warm enough to give a dirty dog a bath....is that not the saddest face you have ever seen? Actually, Maisy likes to be bathed! The camera happened to catch this expression, but she really doesn't mind a bath at all! She loves the attention and would be bathed all day if you scrub her all over!
The girls enjoyed the warm day by "Tye-dying " T-shirts with Kool Aid in the park.
You just mix real Kool Aid with vinegar to make the dye.....if you are interested
here is a link ~ "KoolAid TyeDye"
They really turned out nice and bright - so cheerful!
And there is a lot of panting going on by our four dogs as they all have their full winter coats, and are now desperately trying to shed them (all over my house, thank you very much)
I do hear that a cold front is on the way.....maybe we will have a touch of winter before we have to fight another long, hot, grueling summer!
Are you having weird, wacky weather ~ do tell!!
