Earthworm in January

This is the first time in my life that I have seen an earthworm in January.

This Raspberry has fresh leaves.

But this plant rosette is more normal although it should be buried under the snow. (I think it is a Goldenrod of some sort as Canada Goldenrods and Tall Goldenrods both grow near where I found this rosette.)

Strange winter and so very mild.

I can understand things trying to bloom in Alabama - and even that is not normal - but in Ontario?! That ain't right!

Our daffodils are up too, although that is perhaps because it is fairly warm by the foundation where they are planted. Strange year for sure

What can I say? February is starting the same way. It is supposed to get up to +6°C (43°F) today, Feb. 2. "Normal" high for February 2 here is -2.3°C (28°F).

holy smokes, a worm in January! We're having unseasonably warm weather too- and not enough snow cover to insulate tender plants.
Strange, but that worm takes the cake!
