This Is A Strange Winter

Ginnie BakerI haven’t seen such a strange winter in a long time!

After the warm temperatures in December, we had some really frigid weather at the beginning of January.

Now, it’s back in the low 50’s with a lot of wind!

I hope it’s my imagination, but the buds on some of the trees look like they are beginning to swell.

My Witch Hazel is already in boom; that’s very early. It normally blooms in late February or early March.

At least we didn’t get the snow storm that hit the East. My cousin lives in Baltimore and he sent me these photos during the storm.

I guess I should be thankful for our mild winter!
