Was frost on the windshield and white frost like snow down in the low field. Looked like snow. No blossoms out yet except pin cherry, red elder and serviceberry bushes. No apples or plums yet, but the little plum has been sitting idle for a week because the blooms are elongated, just not opened up. Too cold. ;D Apples don't usually bloom until the first week of June around here.

Beautiful out right now, 72 where I am Inland and slight breeze, swarms of black flies. Grounds getting really dry, spent the day making a 4x20 garden bed, cut small growth, pick axe stumps rocks etc, have it nice and churned, just cut some logs and notched them to nail together To make 4x20 box (yes I know they will rot lol ). Gonna drop some seeds in early tomorrow morning when it’s cool/before the black flies wake up :)

Black flies was so cold they was crawling up under my hard hat just to keep warm. Not one bite. ;D

Woke up 2 hours late  :D I guess swinging a pick axe all day in dry heat with black flies picking at you gasses you. Back at er, pitter patter. 70 today i suspect(they calling for 65 but I’m always warmer here) And sun light breeze

The forecast is 24C for today, high 70's for y'all down south. Trees are in bloom and farmers are planting but it is dry, we have had little rain. It is supposed to get wet next week but who knows how much.

Sunny and 64F here. Got the lawn mowed for the first run. ;D I don't think we will hit 70F for a few more days, constant cool north wind. Overcast and spotty showers for the weekend.

Ready to stick them onions in tomorrow morning before the flies warm up. ;D

I accepted fate and bought a bug net :D black flies are swarming and aggressively biting. With the chainsaw it’s not bad because they just fly around the exhaust port of that but been gardening last few days...

When the wind comes from the North (in warmer months)we typically get warmer air since it has to travel through bay of funds over the valley etc, been warmest part of province last few weeks.

I've definitely used a bug net around the gardens, but tomorrow morning in the low thirties they will be frozen  in time long enough for me to poke in onions. :D

Got another heatwave temp this morning, almost 50°. Maybe I can put my stocking hat away?  ;D  Those low 30's mornings don't last long. By 8 or 9, it warms up quick.

70s and possibly a 80 degree day on tap all this week.
Blackflies will be ferocious at those temps.
Wood Ticks have become a daily nuisance as well.
Been beautiful here weather wise. Apples are abuzz in bees and full bloom.
1st hand full of Asparagus from the garden couple days back, mmmmm good .

It hit 72 here yesterday afternoon and we had a heavy shower after dark. Looks like sun for a couple days. I don't see any 70's and 80's forecast up here. Mid to upper 60's for us, Houlton radio never mentioned it anyway.

Today, they have a longer range forecast and looks like mid 70's for Wednesday. I think today it will be 70 on the porch here, but that is not actual temp because the porch holds the heat in the afternoon, just a screened porch. I was in the woods earlier it it felt like 60'ish at 12:30. Had the bug net on. ;D

They were calling for a chance of thunder showers on the radio, really
Hope it hits us too
