Has spring come early to SoCal? We had rain and cool temps last month and even this month. But, in the last several days, there has been a high pressure system over the west so now we have unusually warm weather. It's hard to complain too much about gloriously warm days (70s and 80s) and sunny skies when the east coast has been blanketed with snow, but the plants are confused. And, the most confused seem to be our apple trees. They are blooming and it's mid-February. This is not normal. March, yes. February, no. They look beautiful though and are a buzz with bees. But, I worry about how they will fare when the weather gets cool again and rains return...which should be later this week. But, for now, we are enjoying the show.
