I looked out my window this morning and I have an Erlicheer daffodil BLOOMING in November!
It hasn't been THAT warm lately - but maybe it's still confused by last year's polar vortex following hot on the heels of the previous year's extremely WARM winter...

I cut it and brought it inside - it's supposed to get below 32 in the next week. Hope the bulb gets enough nutrition to come back.

That's crazy critter. Something is going on..... I had a glad blooming in the last days of September & normally all Glads bloom in June here. Shrug!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

The weather is confusing to the plants as well as to us!

I read recently that Erlicheer requires very little chill time to bloom- apparently that is true! We started getting cool nights in August and shortly after that I started seeing fall foliage on Muscari and Ipheion, about a month earlier than usual.
