This weather is confusing our ornamental pear trees -- Global warming effects here?

The leaves are turning reddish and falling now. This generally happens around Thanksgiving, towards the end of November. The tips are normal for late February or early March, they are setting on buds.

A close up view of what is happening. The poor tree doesn't know whether to hibernate or rejuvenate.

We live in the Gulf Coast Texas area, just north of Houston.

Speaking of fooling mother nature, today Kate in Pretoria, Indiana, wants to know why she shouldn't have a Tiger for a pet. Or a wild rabbit?
The answer is in
Ask Dr. Jim (blog) today.

Wow, global warming is confusing trees and they're a lot smarter than I am. Truly, I am doomed.
 
Maybe it's in menopause. At my age, and depending on the time of the month, I'm never sure if I should hibernate or rejuvenate.
(That's probably more than you wanted to know about me, but what the heck?)

The older I get the more I like this global warming warming idea.

Since I like warm weather and don't care for cold weather, I am a fan of Global Warming.
That tree sure is pretty, even if it's confused.
It's good to be visiting blog buddies again.
I hope you didn't get too sick of my Christmas cookies over at my blog.

Hi Jim ~~ Poor confused tree!! I have a few too, like my wisteria is flowering again. I took a look at your Dr. Jim questions and answers.
Very good, now I know who to ask for my next major problem!!
Thanks for your comments and glad the font print is OK. I have been calling myself a "little old lady" for years and I'm 72.. So I reckon the 90 year old who won the lottery
had earned the title of old lady.
I had a little girl who lived near
me say "Hello old lady" and she meant it nicely. Take care, my friend, Regards, Merle.
 
Happy New Year!
We could use some of that global warming up our way!
Huggles and Love,
Raggedy
