Way Too Early

Way Too Early, originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer.

Before today, the earliest I had ever seen this plant blooming was September 18. It's the native shrub, Witch Hazel (Hamamélis de Virginie) which usually blooms in the fall. During the last few years I have found it blooming as late in the winter as February. I wonder what this year will bring after this early start.
