Contrarian that I am, the phrase “beware the ides of March” come to mind because I have a difficult time believing temperatures won’t rebound to semi-normal at some point. In this area it’s rare that abnormal temperatures last through two or more seasons. A warm winter does not promise a warm spring, and sometimes even seems to bring its opposite in the next season.
An appearance of winter once gardens are planted and fruit trees are blooming is not what anyone wants to see.
Has my photo today caused consternation? I decided that I’d better put a hint in the title of today’s post before people thought I was posting an upside down photo. I even toyed with the idea of flipping the photo around so the trees are right side up, but that just looked weird, as the shoreline of the pond then appears to be in the sky. The pond is rarely so still that a reflected image appears so perfectly to be the normal view.
