Lest anybody assume I was exaggerating the past week's unseasonally warm temperatures, I submit this photo as proof:
Yes, it's a flowering forsythia. On November 21. Sometimes this sort of thing happens to forsythia during confusing out-of-season weather. Our current cold snap will shortly put my giant, overgrown shrub to sleep. (And the roses, some of which are nicely budded.) A little while ago when I checked the thermometer, it was 32 degrees cold.
We've got a semblance of springtime indoors as well--my beloved white azalea.
