The Plants are Confused

This weather is not what we expect in January and it’s not doing us any favors, either. We could really use some rain, but there’s none in sight. Meanwhile, the plants are confused. These Kniphofia, or “Red Hot Pokers” usually bloom in the summer. But when we’re having summer temps in winter, how are they supposed to know the difference? Some plants tell time (or season) by the temperature and others by the length of the day  (or sometimes a combination of both). These are getting some mixed signals.
