Almond blossom

The weather has been odd this year.  Apples trees and quince trees flowered twice during the season, tomatoes didn't ripen and artichokes appeared well before the broad beans.  The climate does appear to be changing and we will need to get used to it.
Almond trees are flowering here now….
… a little early.  Some plants seem to be responsive to temperature,  others to day length (which does not change.)
This is also the first year that I can remember when bogong moths did not emerge during May.  They did not appear at all this year.  I hope that these are not permanent changes.
