Not natural

In late February or early March this might be a welcome sight. But in November...? I did a true double take when I saw the daffodils at the front of the plot not only through, but about 9 inches high. This is definitely a new trend over the past 10 years or so. I remember in the year my now teenage son was born looking out for the first signs of spring bulbs peeking through at the end of February. Over the years they've been coming earlier and earlier, but never as early as this.

My goodness that is a drastic change in climatic conditions. Not to be taken lightly at that.

I also have some miniature daffodils coming up - in fact I thought it was a bulb I'd forgotten about till I looked at the label. Flowering seasons are no longer set in stone - in fact the seasons themselves are no longer to be relied on!

I have some grape hyacinths up, too. I have noticed this before, and think they still came up again in the spring.
