Spring in December?
Here it is December 4th, with Christmas lights starting to shine and the stores busy with holiday shoppers. But instead of snow, I walk out and see my Knockout roses still in full bloom, a few confused Forsythia flowers open, winter jasmine loaded with flowers, fall camellia covered in white blossoms, and even the lavender still producing flowers! Oh, and the ice plants have quite a few flowers glowing in the sun! What's next? Palm trees at the RI beaches? How about a lemon tree out in the back yard? I wonder what's in store for the rest of the winter though. Will we see 5 feet of snow in March? Below zero in April?
