May flower

El Niño effect and May flower
I have been observing Mayflower from past 5 years. Every time it used to bloom exactly around May 10th to 15th. Then after one month, almost all the flowers used to fall off-Then the leaves used to fall off- That used to be the end of the May flower. The big gladiolus used to be inactive inside the soil for about one year till, next may.
I had never seen it blooming early or late even by 15 days. But this year it bloomed nearly 30 to 40 days early. It generated surprise and curiosity in me-
I was reading about El Niño effect taking place this year. This effect appears to repeat itself in eleven years. Some people say that it is connected to Jupiter cycle.
Now, the pre-monsoon showers are too much and it is almost advanced by 30 to 40 days. It clearly indicates that El Niño effect will advance the seasons.
One of the important thing is that it was indicated by blooming of May flower. This means that the El Niño effect is not happening suddenly, after 11 years, but gradually things will happen and we notice the major effect after 11 years.
In my opinion, by studying plant characteristics in depth, we can understand many more secrets of nature.
