Confused Frangipani

My Australian Frangipani is so confused this autumn and cranks up a few flowers. It is supposed to stop growing and save its energy to produce flowers and new growth next spring. Everything in my garden still keeps growing and it is the end of April now.

My lawn and backyard still need mowing every fortnight. If summer had been behaving like summer should, the grass should have gone much less green 2 months ago. But we have had a wet summer in Auckland and autumn is just like spring and has been more glorious than what it was in summer – nice and sunny almost every day but with less heat even on Easter weekend!
