Oversleeping

As I wandered around outside yesterday, I noticed some odd behavior. While the grass is greening up nicely and some of my lettuce is sprouting, the rest of the crew has hit snooze on the alarm clock one too many times.

My lilac is budding out, as well as my rose bushes. But the kiwi, trees and almost everything else missed the memo. IT’S SPRING!

Wake up my friends, wake up!
Smell spring’s fresh air at last
Stretch your bright green leaves
The time for sleep has past

Come kiwi vines, come berries
Break out the freshened shoots
Your rest has been a long one
It’s time to use those roots!

Those trees out in the pasture
Are budding left and right
They’re small but strong and mighty
They’re ready for the fight

Oh kiwi, grapes and berries
Please join us all today
It’s time to show your mettle
Get this season underway!

  1. Plants are so much more aware of ‘everything’ that we are. Some might be delayed by temperature. Some are watching the day length more. Some respond to humidity. It is funny how the moss on the tree trunks looks limb even when regularly sprayed with water, but really gets going when the rain starts. It can’t be fooled easily. Almost all our blooms are earlier there than in most places, but our apples stick to a different and stricter schedule.

  2. Plants are truly amazing!
