Spring is definitely here (in the gulf coast region of Texas)!
It was so strange spending my first winter not in the DC/MD area. Mostly because there was no fall. From like September through mid-December it was on par with what I would say was September in Maryland. It was sometimes chilly but trees didn’t loose their leaves and everything was green. It was like this weird stasis between summer and fall without actually being in either season.
Late December to the start of February was “winter-ish.” We got below freezing once and maybe about 15% of the trees lost their leaves. Now however, everything is budding, flowering, and it’s been pretty toasty. Texas is weird.
