Unusual October / Fall this year. I've seen more fruit, flowers, bugs, animals,birds than any other year here in Delaware county. These photos show my lillies today, they brown up and were ready for winter, but they are all starting new buds and producing flowers in October, please explain if you can. This is a first and this morning when Iwen to my pond, there were more birds than I've ever seen, many different species including lots of robins chasing each other, finchs, sparrows, blue jays, finches, and many more. I'm unsure what this means for winter, but in my eyes it appears as though summer & fall are hanging on in a very unusual manner. The wasps,bees, ladybugs, butterflys,dragonflies, and many others are still out in force. I'm thinking in a couple of years our winters will be much shorter and our summers and fall seasons will be longer.
