The frayed edges of spring

Frayed edges
For the last couple of months, the weather has been shifting unpredictably. We had hot, sunny days in mid-March, and then snow in late April. Farmers are worried about what this might do to the fruit crop, since the orchards were sent into bloom early, then subjected to frigid temperatures. No one seems able to predict what summer will bring.
