    Let's see, the MidWest has had:
    • a drought
    • a severe winter
    • a very warm last few months
    There has been records broken (in most every category) almost monthly for 3 years, right?

    finally had a dusting of snow on the ground this morning. this weekend was a blustery cold in the 30's. during the rest of the week they are calling for upper 40's & 50's with Thursday being the highest at 60! then the temps look like they will gradually go down for a few more days to the mid 40's.

    i went to the greenhouse yesterday to get Mom's gift card & was surprised to see seeds being sold. not a huge amount but usually by November this greenhouse has shipped most of them back to the suppliers. picked up a couple of house plants while there. i resisted the urge to look at those seeds but did looks at the paperwhites and amaryllis bulbs they had left. still wondering if i have time to get my daffodil bulbs in the ground.

    We've been in winter here in the mountains for a good while, as you have had it warmer. When the Jet Stream dips down toward or over us, we get WINTER.

    You don't even have frost in the ground yet?
    Did you get all of those bulbs planted?
