Re: More crazy weather

It is odd, Auralie. Our winter thus far has been warmer than usual, also--lows in the 60s, highs in the 80s. That's about 10 degrees higher than December averages on both ends. Only two mornings so far have been cool enough to suggest a sweatshirt. Thus far, I've managed to both ignore it and enjoy it--except I haven't seen any citrus blooms yet, and that's kind of worrisome. This is normally the time of year when all of them bloom.

This crazy season goes on week after week with temperatures in the 40s and low 50s during the day and low 30s at night. We had one cold snap in early December that lasted only two days. Now it's predicted to rain for New Year's. The worrisome thing is that my bulbs are up several inches. This
morning I noticed that the Hellebore outside the downstairs window has
flower stalks up about three inches. The quince outside my kitchen window has buds showing color. I will bring some in today to force, but they are already about to open. More disturbing is that I do not see any buds on the dogwoods, and usually they form in the fall. There was an unusually heavy crop of berries in the fall, but I can't see any buds formed. Who knows what sort of spring there will be, or what will happen before we get there!
