Return to Winter

So far it has been a very mild winter here in California. We did get some cold weather and rain early in the season, but recently it has been very springlike.

The trees are starting to blossom and flowers are blooming. It was beginning to really feel like spring.Cold Weather, 28 degrees, winter, spring, seasons


But, we are getting a return to winter this week with temperatures dropping below freezing tonight and some possible rain later in the week. new growth, roses, Hybride tea roses, Tropicana, St. Patrick's RoseThe temperatures should be down to 28 in the morning and there should be some frost. I am wondering how my rose bushes will be affected. They are already starting to put on some new growth.

    Seems like the cold has been hitting California around Jan through Mar more than previous years, leaving November and December with milder weather (which used to be colder). And it’s never consistent during those months either so the poor vegetation doesn’t know what to do or when to bloom. Hoping your roses come through beautifully. 🙂
