C for Confused Cherry Blossoms

Until last week, we were having an unbelievably mild winter. I've even seen people in shorts and, here, confused trees bursting into cherry blossoms - unheard of in mid-winter! Linking to ABC Wednesday.
{P.S. I'm back from travels and look forward to visiting your blogs soon!}

gran calidad de imagen. Un saludo, Ángel

Welcome back, Lulu. I had to do a double take when I saw this photo. Amazing. Lovely to see.

Hello there! That's exactly what I saw in Versailles last year. Poor thing, I hope it doesn't freeze.

Amazing! And we believed that Tasmania would give us a nice and warm summer holiday! It was nice alright, but warm? No it was very cold! Ten degrees C.

Those are lovely flowers. It can be hard when they are confused and then it gets cold. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

Thank you! cieldequimper - I know! Poor trees, kinda crazy it's happening elsewhere too. Reader Wil - eek, I didn't realize it would be so cold at this time there. The weather's not been behaving well!

That is early, very beautiful though.

I am feeling confused, too. We had record breaking warm temps today but it will be below seasonal again by tomorrow. I am glad to not be a blossom.

My goodness...those poor blossoms are a bit confused. What a delightful surprise, though, in the midst of winter. Enjoy 'em while you can!

Jenn Valmonte said...

The weather sure is weird and confusing the past few months.

Gee, I hope they come back in the spring and bloom for you! I always look forward to them here in March or April.

Thanks very much. I know, the weather has been truly topsy-turvy. What season is it anyway?

Gorgeous 'quasi' spring image Lulu, poor plants don't know if they're coming or going oui!

Peter said...

Let me know if it blooms again in spring, beautiful though.
