My world is messed up

I try to observe nature around me and was convinced that I could, to some degree, categorize flowers by the seasons they are in bloom. After a trip to the park in Hawera last weekend, I have officially given up. All these lovely plants were blooming like it's summertime when it's actually the middle of winter!

It's been odd flowers blooming in Auckland as well. In some areas it is looking a bit like springtime here as well. Beautiful photos, especially the first one.

I love the first photo. I do not thing I have seen flowers like those. This summer I have plans to visit several arboretums and gardens in search of flowers.

Oh my! Such beautiful blossoms! I am hopeless at identifying plants, which makes things interesting when I'm trying to describe to my mother-in-law what I want in my new gardens ;)

Thank you for joining us again this week for Photo Friday and sharing such beautiful images!

"Tis "Global Weirding"....it's happening everywhere. We normally have mild and stunningly beautiful summers in the Pacific Northwest. Instead it is so hot, out plants are dying. I think we have to actually accept it.

Wow, such gorgeous flowers! Maybe the weather should start reflecting them instead of the other way around (normally that is)...

Beautiful flowers for winter. The season is shaping up to be a very interesting one.

Great photos! We are experiencing a rather mild Winter here in Melbourne also, with all sorts of Spring flowers already blooming.
Thank you for taking part in the Floral Friday Fotos meme.

Well that is a pretty nice way to be messed up! Beautiful. I often forget what season it is since we spend the winter where it is warm. Sometimes I'll be daydreaming as I'm driving to the grocery store or something (say, in February) and I'm wearing cutoffs and a t-shirt -- and I see kids on the playground at school and think "I wonder why they're going to school in the summer?" And then I remember where I am and think 'duh, Florida!" ....

Yes, it definitely looks like summer! You have the same flowers in bloom as we do in the UK! Enjoy your warm weather!
