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.

    Last winter my winter jasmine was out-flowered by my summer jasmine.

    I currently have two cyclamens (pink and white) flowering in my garden. They did flower last winter but are back now in July 



    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.

    Patio Mums that should flower September to November flowering now, first time it has happened in many, many years.
  • Maybe Mother Nature is doing her best to keep the bees, and other insects, well nourished? Never before seen my apple tree bear blossom in late July alongside well-developed apples!
