Cold and windy

Not me, the weather.
Woke up about 0300 this morning and it was cold, checked the thermometer and the temperature was at 39F. Had to get another blanket on the bed.
Today the temps are up to 55F and a 20 knot north wind is whistling by, drops the temperature a good bit so it's cold out even with bright sunshine.
Checked the veggies and all but three of the black crowder pea seeds I planted are up and growing. Four of six cucumber seeds germinated and are growing. Should be enough as we will only eat them fresh this year, we put up so many pickles last year that we won't need anymore this year.
Our pear tree is covered with blossoms and baby pears. If the wind doesn't blow them off we might actually get our first crop of Tennousi pears this year.
Spring garden this year is going to be much smaller than last year, three tomato plants, two sweet chilies, two Ichiban eggplant, and a few lettuces. The winter kale is still going strong as is the chard. Most of the herbs we reseeded are up and showing green. Blueberries are blooming also but the fig hasn't bloomed as yet, a little early for that one.
Nothing much going on today, to chilly for us to be out there and even Tilly is staying warm under her blanket.
Luckily we didn't get the heavy rains and hail of last week. My home town of Orange, TX flooded pretty good but not a lot of destruction. Orange sits alongside the Sabine River just before it hits Lake Sabine, which is actually a bay of the Gulf. We lived a little further inland than the city so no flooding in my memory.

I remember being in San Antonio doing some weeding in shorts and tee shirt. A "blue norther" came thru and I was in the house to get slacks and long sleeved shirt. Think I actually stayed inside the house the rest of the day.

will change. I particularly dislike a cool morning with heavy rain followed by 80 to 90F shortly afterward, Not unusual though.
Still have the cool wind blowing at about ten to fifteen knots but lots of sunshine so it is warming up a bit.
