There are colder temperatures appearing in the forecasts here now.. I dread to think what impact they will have on plants that seem to believe it is March already. New shoots are swelling everywhere.

This is one December for the record books. It will be interesting to see what happens. My poor lilac has big fat buds on it. I am almost afraid to look around any more. We will have to wait to see what will transpire.

Lisa and Jessica — ​We probably won't lose the plants but we may lose a lot of spring flowers. I guess that is the price we pay for the nice weather we've had.

Yes, indeed. I'm having similar feelings, experiences, and concerns. I imagine there are many more spring-blooming plants than I'm even aware of pushing through the soil--growth that isn't readily available because of a heavy mulch of Oak leaves. The mulch should help to keep the temperatures more moderate and consistent. I'll wait to peek until after this next cold snap ... and then I'll cover them again. Wishing us both garden luck in the weeks ahead!


As much as I despise winter and the cold, I do wish we would have some. It is supposed to be in the 70's again today. We have had one light frost that knocked down the truly tropical, but only put most other plants into a sort of purgatory. Now the plants that normally bloom in late winter are either budded or blooming. I feel like a passenger in the front seat looking for a brake that isn't there.
