As I was walking this morning I was puzzled as to what was on the trees at the end of the street.  As I got closer I realized that they were covered in blossoms, cherry, I think. Really? Flowers in the middle of December in Connecticut? We have been having exceptionally warm days for the past few weeks, in the high 50's and 60's when it normally should be in the 30's. Is this global warming? It sure seems that way. Notice the very green lawn in the background. It does look like Spring, but trust me, this was December 18.

Tomorrow I am going into NYC and was looking forward to the mild weather, but they are predicting a cold, blustery day in the 30's. I guess I'll have to dig out the warm winter coat. It is going to warm up again later in the week and the mild weather will continue thru Christmas. That's good news for holiday travelers, including my son who will be coming from Portland, OR and my sister from Long Island.

Come back in a couple of days and I'll tell you why I'm gong into the city tomorrow.

We have daffodils out in the uk, it's very odd!
