    Unseasonably warm temperatures

    Went to check on the dormant plants that I keep outside today. Thanks to the unseasonably warm temperatures for this time of year (55F last week here in IN ), the sundews (mainly filiformis) seem to be thinking that they are back in FL and are throwing out the first leaves of the season.
    I didn't have the heart to tell them that cold weather was right around the corner and that April was still some ways away...

    Any other northerners out there witnessing their plants enjoying the unusual warm weather?

    furthermore, my mediterranean climate has been missing our characteristic wet cold season. it's just been cold here. no snow in the mountains either.

    It's been really warm up here in Boston too. This is the first year that I'm actually worried about losing some vft's and Sarracenias. There's no covering of snow and the bogs are full of hoar ice. Fingers crossed that everything makes it.

    Been pretty warm here in Ottawa, Ontario too. We've been in the positives many time. Usually around this time it's at -20ish celsius.

    Yes... quite warm here as well. It has only been below freezing a hand full of times. And was nearly 50 degrees for a week or so straight.

    Luckily my plants do not accept the low light levels as enough to break dormancy. Also, they will have a rough rest of the winter if it does stay below freezing for long...
