Winter's here and we all say hate to see summer pass away. Robins all have taken wing and mockingbirds no longer sing. The little wren has left her nest and flown south to take a rest. All we have are days of gray that seem to go on day-by-day. But wait, the Ravens still are here listen up and have no fear. Together they will make a team the likes of which you've rarely seen. So every cold and dreary Sunday it will be a glorious fun-day.

Climate forecasters canceled an El Nino watch Thursday, with the climate phenomenon no longer expected to arrive this winter. Recent updates had already indicated El Nino was growing less likely, but the probability it will form has fallen to below 50 percent starting in December. In a monthly outlook published Thursday, the U.S. Climate Prediction Center wrote that while El Nino cannot be ruled out, onset is increasingly unlikely over the next six months. The change in forecast may disappoint snow lovers in Maryland, as El Nino winters are associated with above normal snowfall here.

Revisiting gardens is one of spring's great pleasures. After a brutal winter, every garden seems like a miracle. Recent rains, combined with some very warm days, have made for prodigious growth. Intermittent cool days have held the beauty long enough for one round of blooming plants to be enjoyed before the next breaks open. Every morning, I rush to see my garden. Revisiting it brings daily surprise. Peonies are popping open now like can-can dancers. Three new rose bushes, planted last September, are budding, and one is showing its pink color.

The mysterious die-off of honey bees continues, as beekepers across the nation lost more than one in three of their colonies since last spring, researchers reported Thursday.  The losses in Maryland were even more extreme, where nearly half were lost, according to the state's chief apiary inspector. The national survey of beekeepers found that they lost one in five honey bee colonies over the winter, fewer than the winter before. But they reported seeing substantial die-off in summer as well, pushing their year-round losses to more than a third.
