Mid May Flowers

  • by

More blooms appear during mid May.  New flowers and growth continues to march along despite the cool wet weather we’ve had. 

We seem to have a very dramatic seasonal change here in Southern Ontario from cold to warm.  There doesn’t seem to be a gradual change in temperature with most days warming a bit.  Instead a dramatic change seems to occur over the span of a week.    The timing of the change varies from year to year.  I recall several years when  the warm weather would start in early May.  This year it was late.  This year we jumped from cool days with highs of 12 C or lower right to warm temperatures of  20+ C in the span of a few days.  There seem to be very few days with highs around the calculated average in the mid teens.  Until this week (May 18 – 23) we had to dress for cold weather most evenings on our daily walk.  This week it finally warmed up and it will stay warm, we hope,  until almost October.
