Hella cold

My yard is currently about 20 degrees colder than NYC. Someone said it is snowing in LA, which is obviously a lie, but the point is that it's slightly less implausible than normal. No risk of frost here (knock on wood) so the lime tree, probably my tenderest plant, will be fine. I fear for the plants in NY, though, with all this hot/cold bullshit.


As an example of how weird this climate is, I invite you to consider the picture on the left. That is a rosebud getting ready to open amidst freesias, in case you can't interpret my terrible photography. Also, the viburnum and one of the hydrangeas each sent out a single flower cluster, on bare wood, in December. Still blooming. WTF?
