Phew! What a crazy day (as in scary crazy), as the temperature reached 85 degrees. One warm day doth not global warming make, but it sure didn't feel right.
My garden responded accordingly: a number of my tulips opened, and many of my plants just burst out of the ground. It was actually too hot to do much work in the garden. I did manage to move the joe-pye weed that came up too close to the cherry tree that I recently planted, and (in some premature enthusiasm) put my hollyhocks into the ground. I was sure to water everything thoroughly.
Indoors, my hibiscus, snapdragons and campanula have germinated.
