Late Bloomers?

I’ve been somewhat astonished through out this month of October at the way the weather has allowed the flowers to keep blooming (and the beesa are still out)! It’s odd, I don’t ever recall in my time in Alberta flowers still blooming like this in late October (this was taken on the 22nd). We’ve had warmer weather into October this past couple of years, but the flowers haven’t lasted past the end of September.

The weather is tricking everything - not just the trees and flowers. Last week some ducks in Northern Alberta were caught flying in a ice rain storm and were forced to the ground (some into tailings ponds sadly). But the real question is why are there still ducks in Northern Alberta? They should have flown south long ago.
