I decided to do some last minute clean-up outside since the weather has been so warm lately. Much to my surprise and dismay I found plants coming up...daffodils, crocus, day lilies (which will be fine I know) but I also found a peony coming up which I promptly covered with mulch. I guess I'll have to do a thorough check for more plants that may have been fooled by the warm weather.

Isn't it weird weather?
I can't remember a winter in California that was so cold as this one.
Usually we're having warm Santa Ana wind conditions, and even freakishly HOT days.
This new cold weather is making me feel kind of sick and achey. I really hate this strange cold.

Dang, Alan...you aren't too far from me!
I have a ton of leaves in my gardens...maybe I'll just leave them and not clean up!
...scared of what I might find growing!

It's been like summer here, too! [grin]
...up in the low 70's most days this week.
Gonna change tonight though..... [Eek!]

My dads maple tree was budding up last week. This has really been strange weather this year!
by joclyn on December 21, 2006 02:17 PM
yes, it sure has seemed more like spring (and even summer on some days) than fall with winter just around the corner!!

geez!! my grass needs to be cut again!!!

it's chilling down for a day or two and then it'll be warmer again...

VERY odd weather...i'm glad for it tho as, so far, i haven't had to deal with snow/ice with this stupid cast on my foot. thank god for that!! (the nice weather - not the cast!)
by dodge on December 21, 2006 09:32 PM
joclyn,

Gotcha............

Same story here.......Now I am wondering if I have to go to church christmas eve in ice and snow......Hope not.

they're i know what you mean! they're calling for just rain here on xmas eve...and temps in the low 50's.

maybe you'll get lucky and have the same!!

I have daffodils sprouting too. It sure is wierd. I dug up three of the daffs so they can bloom inside. I'd enjoy the cheery color inside this time of year. It's been warm but overcast so very grey. I wonder just how hot summer is going to be if it's like this now. I heard it was going to be a cold winter. The alminac definitely got that wrong so far.

My tulips coming up today - December 23!!!!!!!!

Sedum growing today too!

And Lithospermum growing and spreading like crazy!!!
At this time of year, it should be completely buried under the plowed snow from the driveway! This was the first summer it was planted, and it's growing like gangbusters now, in the middle of winter!!!

"I'm spayed, declawed, and housebound - how's YOUR day going???"
by Dixie Angel on December 24, 2006 09:54 AM
Lynne, if your weather is anything like ours, I can understand why everything is ready to come out of the ground. Poor plants are sooo confused!

This weather is really something. I was shopping in a short sleeve t-shirt, switching on the a/c when we would get into the car to go to a different store...

72 degrees was our high today...

I've learned not to plant tulips here, though I love them...

Although a few few of my crocosmia were starting to show new groth, but the frosts will knock them back now.....
