/ Anyone else seeing signs of an early winter? #21
I'm in WNC as well and seen some black walnuts on the ground here. Though the grass has not slowed yet I'm hoping for an early frost here in Yancey Co. The frost flowers have not bloomed yet. Keeping my eye on them but I don't think they are 100% right. About 2 years ago it was Nov. before the first frost.A couple weeks ago, a black walnut in town started dropping some fully-matured walnuts.
two weeks ago, the orb weavers started up.
last week on YouTube, someone about 40 miles away posted that their “persimmon seed reading” says early and frigid winter.
today, while out walking about, I have seen multiple sycamores, maples, butternut and black walnuts with leaves turning yellow.
We are in western North Carolina at about 2200’ elevation.
