Whose woods are these? I do not know. Certainly none around these parts. The Japanese maple outside my front door still has all its beautiful leaves. Winter doesn’t seem to be right around the corner.
So what kind of winter will we have? I have heard all sorts of predictions. Cold, no snow. Very snowy. Warmer than usual.
What do the woolly caterpillars tell us? I don’t know. I never saw a one of them this year. Nor were the fruit trees laden with fruit. My holly tree doesn’t have a single berry. Last year it was full.
It’s all a mystery to me.
