I spent a week in Bangor repairing one of our planes that had a bad landing. It was in January and my first exposure to real cold and SNOW! I would love to go back in the spring or fall and really see some things other than the hotel and the airport! KevinT

Looks like a brown anole (also called Cuban anole) - not native. There's more introduced species of lizards in FL than native.

We've had everything already bloom here from the trees and weeds to the flowering bulbs. That was in April. We got all the heat the East coast didn't this year.

You need to go to western Maine in the fall or Aroostook County during potato harvest. Stay away from the tourist sites if you want to see the real Maine.
Bangor area is nice but the coast line from Belfast north is better in my opinion.
Go down East to Lubec, or climb MT. Katahdin.

Should add my favorite in Machias visit Helen's Restaurant for a big plate of seafood and then finish with a slice of pie. Never mind the calories.
I tried multiple times last month to catch some of those little critters, either they are too quick or they just didn't want to move to Wisconsin.

weather

That's the same thing that happened here, we were 80 in april so everything bloomed then two weeks later we had a morning low of 26, strange thing though, I was watching hummingbirds in the apple tree the other day and noticed there were blossom on the tree again, maybe a dozen or so, I've never seen a tree rebloom, so we might get a few apples, but over the last 20 years that we have been back we have only gotten one crop of apples!

It's very possible the blooms closed up when it got cold. Our bulbs and damndelions do that all the time. All these years, I never noticed that until the year before last.:confused: When the sun's too hot or at night, too cold they close up shop.
