Pretty But Confused

These charming little columbine (aquilegia) are blooming away in a side garden in SJC. They must not realize it is fall and they are a couple seasons too late or too early! I am just happy to see them never-the-less!

The flowers look lovely, and the leaves are still healthy. Among my columbines, the white variety bloomed the longest, just quit recently.

Wonder why? I was just at Jan, Always Growing, and she's got early bloomers too.

Wow! They are confused aren't they? Is this another sign of climate change I wonder???

I had some columbine that did the same. It seems they lightly bloom in the fall when the weather cools! What a fun treat!
