Leapfrogged to May
Funny ... the crocuses came up at the end of Februaryand bloomed to last week. The daffodils have already gone by. This week's heat wave killed them, I guess, and the pansies I just planted will soon follow, since they are a cool wether flower. ( I should have known better, I guess). If we're to have a hot dry summer, I should acquire some desert plants and the hot dry things like zinnias that don't usually do well here.
I've never seen anything like this weather. We had a couple of perfect days. I think it was April 14 where the sky was blue, the air balmy but not hot, and the hillsides covered with a soft green haze of tiny new leaves.
Yesterday it was in the 90s. Today it's supposed to be a bit cooler (85 or so) and it rained in the night, but I was sweating when I awoke under my sheet even though the air seemed cooler.
