It was lovely, to be sure, although unexpected.
This year, faced with increasing drought, and extended warmth, it seems so different. I don't even want to look at the U.S. Climatic Center's forecast -- I don't think it's good in terms of rain or temperature.
My less-experienced gardening friends are musing about whether they should transplant shrubs, perennials, or sow winter veggies seeds, lulled by the warmth, and the extended season.
