Warm for the Holidays

We have had warm weather leading up to Christmas in previous years, but this year may be the longest stretch of warm days yet. As I mentioned in a previous post, we have had an extended Indian Summer this year, dating back to October. It has been so mild that Spring flowering plants are blooming. We have a forsythia bush sprouting yellow blossoms in our yard at the moment. And autumn leaves still hang on trees.

So, as we begin the season of the Twelve Days of Christmas, we will relish these mild days of December... that is, until Old Man Winter finally arrives.

Hope everyone continues to have a wonderful holiday season.

    i've read somewhere that the seasons will be shifted by one or two months in the near future, so summer will last from august to october, winter will come only in february, etc...
