It's a Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Our Life In The Country
It's warm and sunny here today. This is the second straight day in a row that we have seen the sun. California always has at least two seasons going at one time. The only exception to that is mid-summer when you know it's miserably hot and everything in the garden is gasping for moisture and shade. Right now we have winter going (it gets dark early, the birds are eating lots of seed and suet each day and the temperature drops 20 degrees at night) and spring (all the grass is green, tomatoes are still ripening and my geraniums and gerbera daisies are blooming.) I still need to plant some more bulbs. And at night the crickets make such a racket. It won't be long before the trees will start to bloom. In California, even Mother nature leads a fast-paced existence.
