Strange weather

New Delhi had its coldest day in 70 years (just about freezing). As per Reuters, China is having its coldest winter in 20 years, and there is record snowfall in areas of Japan.

Meanwhile, here in New Jersey, today I note that the honeysuckle vine has dark green new leaves; the daffodils continue their upward push, even the iris - I thought these were summer plants - are poking their heads above the ground. One of my rose bushes is also showing new leaves. I can only hope that a later freeze doesn't damage my plants permanently.
