Seasonal flowering in plants responds to hormonal and environmental cues that lead to expression of genes for flowering and growth. A new paper in this issue of Cell describes how one regulatory gene controls its own expression at the level of mRNA polyadenylation, adding an exciting new model for both the RNA processing and plant gene expression fields.
