Re: How do I know it's been a mild winter ?
>I hope nothing weird happens from now till early March .<
This is my fear.
Even up here in Delaware, there is so much activity seen in the plant life everywhere. And 11th hour cold snaps (it still IS winter, folks!) can be devastating.
In my neighborhood, there is a huge Camellia Japonica. The bottom third of the "tree" actually bloomed out last week. Then we were hit with a 16F night that freeze-dried all the flowers. I hope the other, unopened blossoms were undamaged and will still flower when real spring gets here.
