Siouxland’s spring winter effect, Sioux City

22 Apr

This week temperatures in the Siouxland area have dipped into cool and downright chilly. The overnight temps are hitting the upper 20’s and will hover around the 30’s according to local meteorologists. Which doesn’t bode well for my early blooming plants along with other Siouxland residents. I have only had a couple years when tulips and daffodils I planted actually blossom and hang around a few days for me and my neighbors to enjoy. The other years the cold would zap them and they either didn’t bloom or the bloom faded quickly while the leaves sort of languished until I took pity and cut them off at ground level hoping next year will be better.
