|Nice mixture of new and old strawberry leaves, a result of extraordinary |
warm temperatures in Colorado this fall

Around my house today I could see new leaves of the bulb grape hyacinth or Muscari, new leaves from a parsley plant (and many other herbs), new leaves of the Project BudBurst species yarrow (Achillea millefolium), new strawberry leaves, and of course lots of green lawn grass (Poa pratensis). The great irony is that with the unprecedented hot dry summer many lawns were brown during the summer, but have turned a deep green this fall and winter, now that there is a little more moisture and cool but not cold temperatures. These are cool season grasses, so when daytime temperatures are 10 or twenty degrees above normal it is well within the range of activity for these grasses.
