The low pressure system slowly edged east. Warmth ahead of the frontal boundary lingered pushing temperatures for the second day above 70 degrees. Almost six months since we have experienced the “promise of summer” temperatures. People sported shorts and tank tops. Even the spring ephemerals that have “held their ground” and not emerged joined in. Literally overnight the little packets of Ginger opened, the grape-like clusters of Virginia Bluebells popped, and May Apple stems shoved through the soil.
Turkeys in the woods are gobbling, and three put on quite a sparring show with their red necks, wings flapping and beards dangling. A brown creeper inspected a tree trunk and thrushes flitted in the woods.
Before the rain we grilled out and brought dinner inside as rain drops fell. The first grill of the year.
