|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. |
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.|
