Winter is late this year, showing up mostly after the New Year. Temperatures have been in the 6o’s and even 70’s at times this past fall in the mountains of western North Carolina.
Quinces are in full bloom, bulbs are popping, and there are buds on many fruit bearing shrubs.
All we can do is sit back and enjoy this weird weather. We can possibly expect less flowers and fruit this year because of this late winter weather.
At this point, we can’t stop the climate change. We can only work with it.
