All things must change to something new, to something strange. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I took this shot ↑ last spring on April 17 during a late snow storm, it’s normal to see the buds appearing on the trees.
I took these shots ↓ this week on December 1. It’s not normal to see buds on the trees at the beginning of winter!?
I rarely watch the news but turned it on during our first snow storm. I’m glad I did, it solved a mystery I’ve been wondering about… when I was hiking a few weeks ago I was so surprised that I was finding so many caterpillars crawling, moths flying, and flowers blooming in mid – November, most surprising was a shrub that was budding? It turns out that we had exceptionally warm periods this fall that caused some odd occurences,.. trees and shrubs began to bud out soon after their leaves fell off. It’s so strange to see these buds in December?
