How can you not want to garden with such beautiful flowers to look at and sunshine too?

Thanks Waddy...I did eventually get out there and weed. We had a week of summer (up to 28C) like temps. Now,March has returned to cool and rains.
It was nice to say "Its a little hot today".

28c? Oh I wish!

It's still warm here. It has cooled down a little, though.
At least the upper 80's and low 90's are gone for now. Yay! It's suppose to be only 77ºF (25ºC) today. Maybe tomorrow out to the Anza Borrego Desert to see the super bloom.

Waddy,San Franciscans wish too! Never cold there,but warm is not too often either-lol.

Andy,I hear its spectacular. One of the local Anchors (TV) was there and took some great photos. I had to compliment the guy.
Its still tapping 70ish. That will end Tuesday for sure. Rain.

I've seen the news over the last week. The flowers are spectacular! I think it may be similar to 2005's super bloom. The deserts definitely had more rain in 2005. That was the same year that Death Valley had the lake of water at the bottom of the valley. I read it was the first time in recorded history that happened.

I will be in the upper 60's Wednesday and Thursday with rain.

I noticed yesterday- the blooms on Aloe rupestrus had already faded. 7 days and done. One of the fastest fades of any Aloe I've tried. "Moonglow" was almost 2 months.

That is very fast for Aloe flowers to fade!
