We are having 30 degree weather hotter even, than California. In fact, the temperatures we are having are more typical of July than early May. We've been sitting on the deck for a month already.
This begonia was in an Easter planter. I transplanted it outside about 3 weeks ago.
Grape is greening, about 6 weeks early.
Brilliant sunshine and baking heat. Apple tree on the left is in blossom.
What you may not know, is that we never plant our flowers and gardens before the May long weekend (3rd weekend) because the danger of frost is no longer present. We are enjoying an extra two months of summer weather this year.
