Confusion Amongst The Plants

All around the college there seems to be confusion amongst the plants as to which season it is, some still think it is autumn, some late winter. In the front quad, on the top terrace, the Dahlia 'David Howard' is still flowering, although looking very tired.
Further into the gardens, in the tropical bed corner, the Fuchsia 'Mrs Popple' is also still flowering. Yet, if you look over onto the Nuffield Lawn, herbaceous border and under many of the trees, the snowdrops are pushing through the soil, some already in flower.
Walk along the path passed the Nuffield lawn, admiring the snowdrops, crocus and aconites as you go, the hellebores are in flower in the Goldfish Bowl borders, what a wonderful conflict to have.
