Is it going to be a long, cold spring?

Do you suppose we’re going to have a long cold spring and a short hot summer? I can’t remember a spring that stayed this cold. Most of the ducks and Canadian geese that were coming to the pond every day have quit coming. We still have our pair of geese that come every year. It would be fun to see some little ducklings swimming around.

My daffodils are blooming. They seem to be able to take lots of different weather; the forsythia bush isn’t blooming and it’s usually the first thing to come out. It’s just one strange spring. A few eyes are coming up in my trays I started in the mud room. If the weather doesn’t break, my son from Missouri won’t get here to plow a garden spot, and the other boys are too busy.

I’m planning on having someone rebuild my front porch, but then again there is the weather issue. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref="http://etypeservices.com/Cass%20County%20Star%20GazetteID497/"><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
