Thranduil’s Flower Crown
Well, in The Hobbit (the book), we’re told that Thranduil wears a “crown of woodland flowers" in the spring. So, I suppose we’d probably see him wearing the flower crown if we ever see him in the springtime. That, I guess, is the real question.
The Battle of Five Armies takes place in late November. Spring in Middle Earth would begin in early February. But in the book, Bilbo doesn’t stay in Erebor long - it’s mentioned that he and Gandalf start traveling back west soon, and in fact have already reached Beorn’s house by mid-winter. So, if the movie follows this part of the book directly, we’ll never see Thranduil in the springtime.
I wouldn’t be all that surprised in the movie finds a way around this. I could see spring (with all the renewal and rebirth that’s implied) as a conveniently poetic setting for the end of the movie (what with the rebirth of Erebor/Dale, etc.) But, if they do stick to the book, then we’ll just have to be content with fall/winter Thranduil’s autumn leaves crown.
