3. It's a sunny warm 48 an rising.

 

Here in Ohio. Nothing to see here. Trees budding, premature flowers that froze and died.

Nothing to see here folks.

5. Well yeah....

 

Trees are coming out way too soon. Bulbs are coming up too, soon. We lost our witch hazel blooms. And several others already.

10. Everything that was up froze.

 

It got down to 18 here.

The wife was thankful she didn't clear the leaves.

We do the same thing. It also gives gods critures some cover.

12. I have found it works well for me. We tend to Spring late here

I will not see buds on these Oaks until end of march at the earliest and no leaves till June and that is okay because once they go into leaf i have no sun in the yard...

14. I like oaks.

 

They are pretty much bullet proof as far as seasonal changes go. Fruit trees, and a few other perennials, not so much.

We are trying to our "gentlemans farm" under way, and the weather, well it's not giving us a lot of comfort.

8. hmm, maybe you should try what i do

Considering that weather and climate by their very nature are unpredictable you could try my lazy solution.

I love to grow things. I have a yard with a shitload of old mature oaks in it. I hate to rake leaves, so i rake the leaves up over my herbal AND flower beds in the fall sprinkle a little lime dust in with each layer to try and keep things neutral and i leave them there until i am fairly certain it is spring, then I rake them off and look at all my returning herbs and flowers....

If you have trees it is a great way to do things naturally and to be lazy in the fall....

11. Nothing to see here either...

In my part of New England, we've had some very weird winters for the past few years.

On Dec 24, 2015 we were wearing sweaters when we would ordinarily be decked out in full winter gear, including snow boots.

Last Christmas was about the same. We've had a few very warm days in the past month or two. Some snow, but mostly rain. Last week it was near 70 degrees.

And during summer where I am, we typically didn't need the AC on until mid-August, and only for less than a week. Now it's been hot enough to turn it on by late June, and not just for a week or a few days, and I live in the sticks, where it's typically 7 to 10 degrees cooler than in the city.

Because of my altitude and location, we have our own little micro-climate, and it's changing.

13. That is what they do

Micro climates at least, They change...and sometimes when are actually fortunate to be in the middle of an earth change we do not like it much....
