First Blooms Empty First Blooms

Wed Dec 31 2014, 10:29
Well I never, last day of the year, temperature over night, about minus 5 Deg. last two nights, and this morning, what a surprise: the Forsythia is in bloom.

Not just a precocious instance, which sometimes happens, but substantial blooms.

Last year did not bloom til last week in February, and previous earliest (My records only cover last 15 years) was January 10th.

I suppose it is not absolutely the first bloom. as usual, Evening Primrose have been in bloom a few weeks, but the frost will nip those blooms, and the Danse du Feu Rose still has buds trying to open, but the frost is causing them to 'ball'.
