Here’s a little weekend waterview from Lake Norman.
We’re off to a chilly start here this morning with temperatures more typical of late
January than early April in North Carolina.
We’ll be warming up to high 60s this afternoon but with a dip into the low 30s overnight,
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the Snowball Viburnums didn’t get frost nipped!
It’s been a blustery week with 20 – 30 mph hour wind gusts. . . less than
ideal conditions for allergy sufferers with the all the pollen in the air . . .
The wind blew about a third of the snowball blooms blown off the tree. . .
the first time I’d seen that happen!
A Tree Swallow took up residence in one of our birdhouses by the water.
It’s the first time seeing them nest there as it’s usually occupied by Bluebirds.
The azaleas are blooming in waves. . .
If they weren’t zapped by the cold temperatures overnight,
70 and 80 degree temps by mid week should coax the rest into blooming.
Is anyone else finding it hard to believe Easter is next weekend?
