What Frost Warning?

This Field Strawberry (Fragaria virginiana ssp.glauca) is one of 95 wild flower species that I have found during the first nine days of October. I photographed it just an hour ago on Oct. 10.
It is not uncommon for several spring wild flower species to bloom again in the fall. I assume it is the amount of daylight hours that is the stimulus.
