Gardener’s almanac (April 27)

All over the map – We had a minor hailstorm Monday evening, a frigid rain Monday night, and snow Tuesday night, before what I think was the final turn toward spring. I had to go out and stand in the snow Tuesday night, first of all because you don’t always get to see snow on green grass and budding-out hydrangeas, and also because you don’t always know when the final snow of the season will be, but I was pretty sure this time. And after a nice stretch of spring blooms on the shrubs and trees, snow felt kind of novel again, and I was oddly sad to see it go. But I’m mostly very happy that we got some rain this week.
