Weather Worries

Temperatures in the 70s and snow in the forecast this week, not too surprising for February in Nebraska.

But with the warmer weather, tree branches have started to flower and bulbs have started to inch their way through the soil.

 

Not to worry though, plants know when spring has arrived not only with warmer temperatures but also when our days are longer. Iris, tulips, and daffodils are hearty bulbs while trees have backup systems that will not be harmed with additional snow and cold temperatures.

 

Snow or even a little rain would be great moisture for our soil too. So don’t worry about the weather. Enjoy the warmer temps while they last and get excited for all the blooms and green to come in spring.
