The Darling Buds of May

This is a Ceanothus bloom. A Ceanothus. There are only a few open, but the entire shrub is smothered in swelling buds that are about to pop.

What the what?

They usually bloom in May.

It's February. Yep, just checked the calendar. It's not May yet, it's still February.

Back in the Northeast, they are having apocalyptic winter weather. Here the plants think it's May.
