Confusing Time

This Has Got to Be a Confusing Time...

...for all the plants and flowers.

After all, it's January.  Albeit the end of January,
but still January.  And January is still considered Winter, right?
However, when daffodils bloom, tree olives bud...

And periwinkles begin peeking, it's definitely SPRING.  
In my book, anyway.

Here's where we were just one year ago.
Snow on the ground - appropriate for WINTER.

Unless of course, you live further south.  As in South Georgia, Florida, the Tropics or below the equator.  Not as far "south of the equator" as Antarctica though.
In that case, you'd be freezing all the time.  But even there, they don't mix Winter with Spring, do they?

So, it's got to be a little confusing for the local 
fauna and flora here.  One day they poke up their heads, basking in the warmth of the sun, enjoying the weather for a warm spring day (or even hot summer day).
Then BAM... it's winter again.

And for the people... can imagine what it's like to try and dress for the day.
I see shorts and flip flops along with wool coats and boots.  HUH!?  
I'M CONFUSED.  Never mind the plants.  

Wishing you clarity of mind from Whippoorwill Road,
