It's Officially Spring

It's Officially Spring

At 11:33 AM EST we officially entered the Spring of 2022. It is 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness but going forward we will gain a few extra minutes of daylight all the way to late June.

The temperatures are still on the cool side only into the mid 50's so the colors of spring are slow to develop. I did see a few areas with potential and stopped to take a couple of photos.

As we get a little further into the spring days, the temps will warm, and the colors will pop as well. I can hardly wait.

It will be a while before we see flowers here Ed Silva but I did rake some leaves from a flowerbed today and found the chives are very active already.

 Good evening, Ed,

Lovely photos.  I am assuming they are of crocus flowers. They always are first on the scene. A

Hi Ed Silva - Our temps are almost the same.  We have a cold front moving in and the temp is 55º.  Of course, we have had snow in early spring but if we don't get anymore soon,  we probably won't see it until next Winter. Happy Spring!

First flowers of spring are always lovely, Ed. I was in Charleston on Friday and Saturday and all the azaleas were blooming... not so much here in Charlotte as yet.

Bob "RealMan" Timm   I did my raking but nothing braking ground except for the daffodils which get a lot of sun.


Ron and Alexandra Seigel   Yes A they are crocus, and these were in an area that gets a lot of sun

Kathy Streib   It will be a while before out azaleas show anything as the deer ate the leaves over the winter.


Will Hamm   I am working to the optimism that we are all done with snow

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®   We should be all done with snow as the temps have been getting warmer, but it is still the Northeast.


Nina Hollander, Broker  We noticed a lot of the azaleas in bloom in Hilton Head earlier in the month but nothing up here for a few more weeks

Ed Silva it's definitely been warmer in Charleston these past few weeks than in Charlotte, even though we've had lovely weather.

Hello Ed - I went walking yesterday morning on the first day of "official" Spring a bit later than usual and it was still a bit cool (by our Southern California standards).  The calendar may "say" one thing but nature often proves others factors to be true.  And, of course, weather is always subject to change.

I definitely enjoy the pictures of spring more than I enjoy seeing the cold-weather pictures!

Ed, what a lovely surprise, and think it could be a bit longer for us, expecting more snow today.

Good morning Ed Silva, beautiful pictures, love the purple color. It's been in the 80's in Central FL for the past week, I'll take it any day over snow.
