5:30 AM and 28 degrees out. It dropped below freezing about 9 PM last night. That's a long time for all the plants that were starting to bloom just a couple of weeks ago. The mountain lilac (ceanothus) had already started putting out buds and tender growth. Our bees have been foraging on the rosemary blossoms.
Wouldn't it be great if the temperature zapped the Oak Borer? We've lost another big Coastal Live Oak to them, and have several others thinning out. Maybe the borer will move back to a warmer clime. Can't think of a better New Year's gift.
