Just a few weeks ago my daughter's Apple tree finally lost its leaves, after they turned brilliant colors.
And yet today I noticed my Marigold in a pot is actually blooming again!
There are fresh green shoots of what looks like daffodils coming up in the landscaping on the apartment grounds, too. Seems like the plants think it's springtime. But we haven't hit the deepest cold of winter yet. I'm pretty sure there won't be any snow for christmas!
