Out of season flowering

Hi all, I couldn't find a recent thread about this but I seem to be seeing more and more plants, trees and shrubs flowering at unusual times and wonder if anyone else is noticing this? If so, this would be a good place to post photos of them. I'll kick-off with a photo of a pear tree, already laden with well-developed fruit but it decided to produce a few flowers over the last few days:
This aquilegia was still going in September last year:
A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
And my dwarf lilac had a second flush of flowers that is just finishing. That was a really nice surprise as I didn’t find the time to enjoy it in spring.
