Strange December

Saturday, December 01, 2007 | 08:30 AM

Is it me, or is this an odd, eerie time?

I take the pooch out for an early morning walk -- its a crisp clear cold December 1. Why do half the trees still have their leaves on? The Oak trees have turned yellow brown, but the foliage is on the trees, instead of in bags on the ground  where they belonged a month ago.

We live a block from the harbor -- walk the dog over, where the stiff breeze makes white caps. Its 33 degrees, but last week it was 60. Hmmm, there are still a few sailboats in the water -- on December 1 ?! Weird.

The various neighborhood Japanese Dwarf trees are still 90% leaved -- turning a lovely golden yellow -- but its December, and they should be bare naked. Our  Dwarf Maple has -- finally! -- dropped 80% of its red leaves this week.

I have no idea what any of this means. Its just very odd . . .

I have noticed the same things. Don't have any idea what it means, only that changing weather patterns are altering the growth cycles of certain things in the plant world.
