Buds on the trees in mid March in northwestern Iowa?!? Unheard of! Trees don't normally begin to show signs of growth for another month--at least. Our average high is still just 47 degrees F, but we've been running more than 30 degrees above average! Tomorrow the high is predicted to be 83 degrees! The lilac bushes already have small leaves. Last year, which was unusually cool and wet, the lilac leaves finally made their appearance in late May.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
