Hey, you know, the weather's turned warm out here in the West. Allergies are in full swing, too. The aphids are covering cars in "honey dew" and making a sticky mess. 63F at 8:55 in the morning, warming to the high 70F's at least.

It's been pretty nice here in south central Texas. Mid to upper 70's or low 80's during the day and low 60's at night. Veggies are doing great.

Started off gray this morning, but it's 76F and sunny now. Not sure how anyone can complain about this type of weather. :)

Hi Mike!!

Yesterday it was 80 degrees.. Then the cold front hit and it dropped the temps down into the mid 30's. mmmmmhmmmm , had to bring in 40 large Plumeria. All of the others trees and tropicals are still under the lights upstairs and in the greenhouse. I thought I could bring out the mature trees in the hopes of the temps being around the mid forties, but NOOooooooo!

Wind gust up to 70... We had a huge coal ship break for its mooring and was adrift in the bay.. I have never seen weather like this. It's totally unbelievable.

I'm really tired of this weather ... If I was in Florida.. I wouldn't be complaining!!! ;-). Lucky you!!!

Hi Josh... I was thinking of you last night. My Squill needs to be repotted and I'm going to split them . How are yours doing?

Happy spring to you!!!

Our PNW weather has turned nasty too. Today's high is 53F and tomorrow will be 52F. That is about 10 degrees below average for this time.

Like they say: Weather, you can talk about it but you cannot do anything about it. So let us all start whining. :)
