Yes the flowers are most confused this year. We still have around 9 degrees C here.

I don't think I've ever seen a daffodil blooming in January. Here's hoping it's a good omen :)

Thank you Ms. Pat. Something about seeing those flowers at this particular time of year is life affirming.

That is lovely, Pat. I can't remember a lovelier autumn than we've just had, and those two flowers are just remarkable in January.

Rashbre: in spite of the tempest in the last 24 hours I haven't felt cold - really weird.

Kim: yes of course it is a good omen. We are all going to have a great 2012.

Pat said...

MITM: thank you Sir. Lovely to have you visit:)

Mike and Ann: poor dears - they do look a bit lost:)

Flowers in January? Outside???

You obviously live in a much different climate than I do... we have yet to hit the coldest part of winter. That will come later this month and into February. Flowers don't start poking their heads out until April or May, depending on spring temps. And by then, we are more than ready for greenery.

Yours is so lovely to see!

Tomorrow I will just have to go out and examine my garden! I thought I saw a rose through the kitchen window on Christmas day, but that's not unusual with my peculiar bush. Daffs, though, how exciting!

Pat said...

Ponita: you are right our climates are very different but this is highly unusual even here.

Eryl: We have been deluged with torrential rain but now it is dryer I must have a look too. Can be quite exciting from now on.
