Neil and I went to our community garden today and were amazed by how many flowers were in blown. These Crocus where the prettiest, but there were many more not to mention all the Kale and Sage that never died back. Very strange to have such a non-Winter. We still have march to look forward to, who knows it could be freezing.
Even though it's much nicer for us humans to have a mild Winter a lot of plants need a good long cold snap to go dorment and do there thing. Grist has a great article on this subject which will have you wishing for a very cold March.
