Sunflowers on the North Fork

Blooms to Come

By

No, the sunflowers are from this last week, they’re from last July. But the weather’s been so weirdly warm we’re all thinking of the blooms to come. Weather aside, all year long, even in February, the North Fork blooms in one way or another. Below are two pretty plants that are in season, not greening early because of the very warm winter we’ve been having: Witch Hazel And this one isn’t a bloom really, those…

Snow, Finally

By

So far this has been the winter that wasn’t; the one big storm we’ve had was too warm to be white. Indeed February 8 hit 60 degrees. But Thursday the snow is to come, with emphasis. It may disappear quickly; Saturday and Sunday will be in the 40s, as will most of the week to come. But for a little while we’ll have the beautiful blanket that our four-season weather periodically brings. Here’s some snow…

The North Fork, Getting Greener in January…?

By

This January has been so (relatively) warm that our big Nor’Easter gave us rain, not snow. That means our landscape isn’t white and sparkly; in fact, the winter brown is turning green, more like March. And flowers are breaking ground, and Montauk Daisies are budding new leaves. All pictures from today, January 25: A greening farm field in Orient Crocuses breaking ground Montauk Daisy creating fresh leaves Perennial turning green Share:

The Fast Melt

By

Last weekend’s storm gave us several inches of snow, but Wednesday it was gone (except for the piles in parking lots). Right now it’s 50 degrees despite being January. It’ll cool off a bit by the weekend, but still be dry and too warm for snow. The melting snow reveals how green the North Fork remains, even in January:   Share:
