Seasonally impossible

The first time I saw it I thought I was going mad.

The next time my husband thought I was going mad.

But then I saw it again and got proof… elderflowers and elderberries on the same plant… in September!! Have you ever seen this before?

But this is not the only unseasonal occurrence in the past twelve months.

We had snow on roses and ripe strawberries in our garden in December last year. Daffodils too! The parsley and chives were up and green in January and had gone to seed by May. lettuces sown in late March didn’t sprout till mid August.  Surely this is climate change in action. Do you have any strange unseasonal happenings in your neck of the woods?
