April flowers soaked by May showers equal early fruits

May’s warmth arrived in April. The April rains have soaked the first week of May. It’s all so confusing, but the plants like it. The plums are ripening about three weeks earlier than they were least year. The first strawberries have set fruit about two weeks earlier. And a brand new pink columbine popped up where I don’t remember planting anything. This really is a marvelous spring!
