Sunshine and Showers bring forth
May…ooops October Flowers
May or October the flowers have had a tough year trying to keep pace with the changing cyclical seasonal pattern. Our Honeysuckle that gave us such a bountiful display of flowers in May is, in the middle of October, flowering again…
Berries on our Holy Bush first appeared in July, still in berry….but will they last till Christmas?
And of course if you have Holly you must have the Ivy…which is in full flower
Nor is the Winter Flowering Jasmin going to be out done, it to is putting in an early performance….
So a right old hotchpotch of early, late and repeat flowers…just like us, not knowing if its spring, summer, autumn or winter. I wonder if the seasons ever will get back to normal?
