♦ NATURE JOTTINGS. DECEMBER. 23.No day of the year is too early to find the chickweed and groundsel in flower, nor for the daisy to open wide its florets, but last. Saturday I found on a hedgebank a. dandelion in full flower, which I think is early. Of course, there are still many hawkweed blossoms— late summer's flowers—in the fields which soon catch the eye and which, to the majority, are, because, they have the ap- pearance of, "dandelions," but the com- mon dandelion is not ordinarily a plant which flowers in December but rather is fostered by the more stirring influence of early spring. Truly it has been a peculiar year, and now, Christmas is here finding the countryside full of the spirit of spring. Winter, if and when it comes, must op- press a good deal if 'it is to gain distinc- tion a little frost, at ni;ght would have trifling results.
