Here is the place to post about anything happening in nature around us you either believe or have heard of that may be an indication a cold snap coming etc.

I do find it facinating to hear of old wives tales and who told them sometimes through the generations.

I have seen a few in the threads which are laughed at but this is just for fun really.

Before we had all this technology farmers and such did actually use some of these signs to prepare.

I saw a programme about farmers and the red sky at night theory was tested and it actually turned out to be quite acurate.

I would love to hear your theories,thanks floaty.

ps i cant believe i put a typo in the title,and i dont know how to change it!!sorry.gif

The grass is more green than usual, if the grass is dark green we will be have a cold winter, if the grass is light green you better hope next year will be better acute.gif

Because colder air is moving towards the UK?...

Btw, nature doesn't decide the future, it shows the past- of course grass colour in November means nothing about December, January and February, more something about August, September and October.

At least someone has an idea of what i was after so thank you barry.

My friend had a white winter rose and before a harsh start to winter it always seems to bloom earlier.

Don't really like these flippant comments...

I've only ever heard of early migrating birds Floaty, but that could really be a matter of reasons.

The grass is green here.. very green.. I guess it means that the grass is not as stressed during autumn and winter, as opposed to summer, where it starts to lose colour a lot. Was not an issue this summer though.

Well this is my sort of forum! Geese flying in formation from the North is a sign of snow. When there are lots of berries on the White Rowan Tree and if your crab apples are large then a harsh winter is on its way!

Hello Isolated Frost. You are correct of course but I have been wondering lately if the country folk of olden days may have accidentallly been on to something when forecasting what lay ahead. For example. take a glut of berries, they say this portends a harsh winter. We know that a lot of berries come about through good growing conditions earlier in the year. But what I am thinking is do these previous conditions with positioning of weather systems etc predetermine where weather systems will subsequently be positioned and what will happen months hence and that such conditions would favourably be more biased towards cold rather than mild weather?

Kind Regards

Dave

When swans arrive on the boating lake in New Brighton, Wirral I know things will be turning much colder. They didn't arrive at all last year.

Deers grazing on the lowlands are a sign of a bad winter - obviously this doesn't apply in Lincolnshire! If you can't find any acorns on the ground at the start of November is another good sign! Robins going into barns and porches indicate bad weather is on its way!

Because the amount of wishful-thinking (by NW members) has surpassed a certain threshold: just keep thinking of a white blob!
