Given the time of year, I guess this qualifies as a heat wave. The trees seem to be enjoying it. I have never seen the oak in my backyard leaf out so quickly, or the leaves turn a dark green so soon after developing. Some of the oaks are still leafless, though. Maybe they are in shock from the sudden change in the weather. But all sorts of plants have burst into bloom, almost overnight. Little good it will do them if the bees don't soon arrive. The hives must be infested with those mites again.
Also, I notice that Frank has finally finished his birthday cake. He's back to his old grey self. Any bets on what color I'll be seeing him wearing tomorrow?
