To Bloom or Not to Bloom…

January is normally the heart of winter where I live. A time when the snow falls and when temperatures dip well below freezing. When I’m have to break the ice on my horses’ water buckets. And when, despite my heavy coat and gloves, I shiver…and shiver some more. But this year is different. Sure we’ve had a few cold days, but the temperatures are much warmer than usual.

Tulip tree with its buds

So much warmer that my crocuses are peeking some greenery above the soil, and my tulip tree has buds. Not just small buds, but big ones. Buds that are normally the precursors of flowers.

I’m kind of wondering what the rest of January and February are going to bring. Will we have the normal deep freeze of winter? Or is this a sign of things to come? I’m really hoping my tulip tree decides to hold on a little longer and keeps those blooms hidden!

What about you? If you’re in the northern hemisphere, are your temperatures warmer or cooler than normal? Anyone else out there with some confused plants? And/or confused  people?
