Super-weird plant event
My forsythia are flowering. On September 29.
And although it's not the whole gorgeous bush, it's not one or two flowers, either.
I've never been one for heavy-duty season extension, but I finally seem to have achieved it!
I did check the lilacs, which in the course of the springtime cycle would follow the forsythia, and they are not budding. So that's a relief. Or not!
So, is this really weird, or not? I think it's weird, and the permaculture guru I asked thought it was weird. Readers?
