Flower Photo Friday, unseasonal Flowers

In Detroit, where I now live, there is usually snow on the ground in January, everything is frozen, and there are no flowers in evidence. But this year, the temperatures so far have been unseasonably warm and we have flowers in blossom.

Pansies are perrenials and opportunists--they will flower whenever they can. Flowering Kale is cold hardy--but not usually in January. Dandelions are spring flowers--and either they are confused or we're having a very early spring.

I went out in the backyard this morning to pick up some windblown litter. Three periwinkles in bloom.

The long-range forecast for the next two weeks indicates more of the same, the LRFs are not known for their accuracy.
