The First Real Growing Green Thing Of 2012

Such a strange winter..here it is Feb 21 and I have NO snow outside my window..just a few patches of ice and now....

 our chives have come up..
They make a second sign of spring that I've noticed. As mentioned in my previous blog entry, some of the maple trees are running sap and now the first real growing green thing of 2012. Are you buying the early spring theory or are we going to get blasted come March and April?
Snow for Easter? 
I've seen it before...
Caveat emptor!


  1. Slowly, but surely. I think it will seem an early spring, because of a mild late winter. No green here yet. Except tiny garlic mustard leaves in the woods. And watercress.

  2. I'm with you. I think winters going to play catch up come March.
    I love chives, they go with everything.

  3. I hope you're right Casey but like Brk Trt, I don't think we are off winter's hook yet. Keeping my finger's crossed tho..Thanks for stopping by you two.

  4. I've noticed that the vultures are making their way north already. Saw one cruising over southern NH. Also- there's dead skunks on the road...
    It's a very low NAO year (North Atlantic Oscillation) which is a regional weather pattern and it accounts for the patterns we are in such as mild winter for us HARD winter for Europe. I know this because if affects our zooplankton communities as well.
