Doomed, we're all doomed!

This was taken a couple of days ago. An azalea. What is this doing flowering now?

Only you found it though John......... so perhaps it's a personal message? Or maybe we have just got he calendar all wrong after all?!
Pretty though!

When should it flower ?. It's not one of those plastic flowers you used to get free with soap powder,and you are trying to scare us ?.

At the weekend I noticed that one of my blueberry plants was flowering again and had some fruit on it!

Blame it on Global Warming.

You're obviously hallucinating. In colour.

The plants keep thinking it's Spring again and sprout. They'll wear themselves out. I know how they feel.

Its all very odd. I am growing potatoes to harvest at Christmas... does anyone think it will work? They are about 1 foot high at the moment and I have just earthed them up..

I once stuck a plastic foxglove in amongst the real ones in our local woods (Why? That's another story.) and promptly forgot about it. That is until I read a letter in the local paper about a foxglove that had been seen in the wood flowering in September! Amazing!

So John, are you going to bring that plastic azalea flower to the pub and show us?

I was in London at New Year's and the cherry trees were blooming at Buckingham Palace (clicky)...

Maybe it's the start of summer seeing as the real summer was pretty crap it would be nice to have a warm winter!

I think it's something sinister, like the planet warming up on it's own!

Kamryn beat me to it -- Global Warming.

I planted a bunch of bulbs this week, a full month later than normal, because it's been too warm for them until this week.
