I am a teacher and I enjoy living along Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful place that makes me feel like I am on vacation all year long!

The daffodils are in bloom and the tulips are budded. Maple leaves have shed their outer shell and are red and ready to unfold. The last two days have been the warmest March days in recorded history. 83F.
I am outdoors every evening enjoying the mild and sunny weather. I can't believe our good fortune top be enjoying these sunny days.
Sadly, these beautiful apple blossoms likely spell doom for the local farmers. We are at least 2 months away from the last frost date. A frost will eliminate the entire fruit crop in Michigan this spring/summer. There is nothing to stop Mother Nature, we will just have to enjoy the blooms and see what happens down the line.
