For my third and final post for the Changing Seasons Challenge is typical for my area. Often time I joke that Mother Nature gets confused when it comes to the weather. It is December, and despite the leaves falling on the ground and the squirrels preparing for winter, however, nature decides to give us unseasonably warm weather. We have hit the 70s several time in the past week with more to come. As a result, we have “new growth” on several plants outside.
