Default Is this "normal"?

Hi,

I have some daffodils popping up (about five inches high already). I also
have a clematis which has been flowering since November and still has buds
and flowers on it.

What's going on? Is this normal?

I live near Bedford.

Some clematis are winter-flowering, so it may be normal, depending on
the variety.

The clematis flowered in June/July also. Not sure what variety it is. If I
had a digital camera I would take a picture of it, but I don't, so I won't.

Lots of Kniphofias flowering around here at the moment! Some summer bedding
fuchsias still flowering. Arum lilies regrown after early frost. Bulbs
coming up. Weird.

It's just that the unseasonable conditions are fooling the plants into
believing that it is time for them to be active and productive. Most
years, about March, they get a rude awakening with the Siberian winds
and reality is established.

I planted over 400 spring bulbs last Autumn - tulips, daffs, crocuses and
snowdrops and I'm hoping that they don't all get wiped out by a v. cold
snap in Feb/March.

Even some tulips are poking their heads through now.

Yep, I concur.. This has been the 'norm' for the past 5 - 10 years..
The weather is a bit off from being 'regular', we should come to expect
it by now;-)
Wet winters, cold springs, odd summers and weird autumns!-)
