Signs of Winter


The last two days feels Old Man Winter has decided to visit this part of Oklahoma. I have snapped a few pictures of the changes we are seeing.  Everything is changing; the grass is no longer green, the leaves and flowers on the trees are turning yellow and brown.  Some trees are showing signs of dying.  Will we have the harsh winter as predicted this year, or will it be warm?  Mother Nature may just surprise us.  Sunday we’re supposed to have rain and the potential of snow. 

















Have you seen a dramatic change in the last couple of days?

  1. We are not seeing the same changes you are just yet in this part of Oklahoma...Our grass is still green, I am still getting tomatoes off the vine...I pick them while they are still green and ripen them by setting them in front of the window or in a paper bag in the closet...our temps today were in the 80's...we do have a cold front moving in but our highs will still be in the 50's...we don't have green leaves on the trees much but alot of that was due to the drought...I am still not sure what winter will hold...I suppose time will tell...

    1. It's funny how some areas of Oklahoma will be warm while others are cold. The weather man stated expect rain, cold temperatures, and snow Saturday night into Sunday. I will pray for just cooler weather, not extreme cold.

      That is so great you have tomatoes now, mine are all gone. There are no more plants in my garden what so ever.

  2. No changes here, but it is cold for NFLA. Supposed to be in the upper 30s here tonight.

    I think the garden loves it. The romaine lettuce, chinese cabbage, regular cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower & brussels are loving the cooler temps. Even the beans seem to be doing OK.

    Although it IS supposed to be near 80 here on Sunday. I've got my concoction (garlic powder & cayenne pepper) ready to spray on Sat.

    1. Hopefully, the temperatures won't go below 32 there for you and other places in Florida. Don't want all the fruit trees to freeze.

      Gardens love cooler weather, they thrive, especially when it's not extremely hot.

      All set with your concoction, that's good.

  3. I was watching the weather channel when they showed the upper northeast and the snow. That's the last thing those poor people need, but it reminded me of WET SNOW. Funny how quickly I forgot that not all snow is softly falling and beautiful.

    1. Snow is beautiful, but like you said when it's wet and your not prepared it's no fun.

    1. The weather here in Oklahoma is so strange. I never know what to expect, lol. If you don't like the weather right now, give it 15 minutes and it will change. Right now we have high winds, heavy clouds, the sun and strange temperatures. You can feel the pressure changing.

      I love pictures too. We will stay safe and warm thanks.

  6. I woke up this morning and there was so much frost on the ground that it looked like snow. Now the sun is shining and it is pretty warm out... well, compared to this morning.

    1. It had to of been pretty cold in the early morning hours to produce frost. Good thing it heated up later in the day.

  7. It's trying to come in..we get to the 30's then it pops back to the 70's...Most of our leaves are gone and the plants are drooping from frost. Kinda beautiful in its own way.

    1. Thanks, I'm not sure what the vines are, maybe Possum Haw Holly or Choke Berry.

  8. I love the interesting changes fall brings. We are now getting the predicted Sunday rain, light but falling off the roof. We are happy about it!

    I have been meaning to tell you that is a great picture of the coyote. My husband keeps trying to catch a shot when he is checking the cattle, but, so far, no luck.

  9. I love the changes myself.

    As for ice at winter, I'm not a big fan.

    Thank you, it took me a while to catch this shot. The coyote didn't like having me watch him.

  10. It has been in the high 70's here. It's nuts. I wore flip flops to EMT class the other night. I am enjoying it, but I really do like the change of seasons. Was hoping for a white Christmas,...

    1. 70's temperatures, nice! It's been cold here. I'm hoping for snow on Christmas too. We can do without the ice though. These people here in Oklahoma don't know how to drive with ice.

      I used to live in Virginia, the Centreville (Fairfax) area and loved it.
