Praise God for the warmer days this week! We've had 40 degree swings in the temperature (low 40s at night, low 80s during the day). That has helped stir the energy flow of plant. Buds I thought last week would surely be lost are opening...and I'm cutting.
There are 10 buds on on the bush. Soon to be in a vase.
How can this be, on New Year's Eve?
Ah well. I must get to the annual pruning on the rest of the bush. It's the last one, and it needs its winter rest.
Be safe tonight. Tomorrow is the Lord's Day.
Enjoy...just don't end up like Ted Hanover (from Holiday Inn, 1942, one of my favorite movies!)
The weather on Monday should be great for the Rose Bowl Parade. We had massive snows in the mountains last week, so the views should be spectacular.
Someaday I'll have to take the youngin's and camp out on the Colorado Boulevard again! Now they allow small hibachi's and grills for heat...something they didn't do 22 years ago! Back then 50s felt temperate to this midwest transplant. Now I wear a coat! LOL I guess that official makes me a Californian.
