THE DICHOTOMY OF A JANUARY HYACINTH
With the warm temps this winter, many of the spring flowering plants and bulbs are fooled into thinking it is time to sprout.
The question is "to grow or not to grow"...and will it survive the inevitable harsh temperatures and snow to come...
We are leaving for Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada in the morning...Brrr I have never been there in the winter. But, I am taking my camera ...and we're birding too. I HOPE to get some neat shots to post on Tuesday after we return. Algonquin is one of our favorite places to vacation...we have camped there in the summers and enjoyed the quiet of the north country. The skies are bright with stars one could never see in Cleveland... occasional auroras, shooting stars and even satellites going through the big dipper are evening treats, while moose, wolf and fox can sometimes be seen in the woods and along the road. We can't canoe like usual, and the loons are wintering in the south, but there is wildlife to be seen and heard and landscapes to capture "on film."
