I love the crepe myrtle trees. They bloom for 90 days. They brighten up my day.

    Have you heard the news that SP is going away in August? They're apparently starting a new site, but it doesn't sound as though they're moving our existing account there, so we'll need to start over. I'm pretty unhappy, but at least they are giving us some warning.

    It's definitely too early to contemplate planting anything here right now. My neighbor is waiting to get her tomatoes in the ground, but she'll really need to wait another few weeks. She starts her veggies in a greenhouse in her back yard. Otherwise, the season here would be too short to produce much of anything.

    I'm with you on the wind - I like it below 10 mph if possible, but our spring is very windy and highly variable temperature-wise. When I lived closer to your neck of the woods, spring was my favorite season. It's so beautiful with everything blooming. It does seem that it's getting warmer, though. Spring's my least favorite season here.

    The occasional 23 F degree night in May isn't too bad, as long as it's short-lived. However, I could do without the winds at the same time. Today was not as windy and our high got up to 62. My friend and I bundled up and ate our lunch outside.

    Yes, I remember how windy the valleys could get when I lived in northern CA. We have a similar problem here. Our dry seasons are spring and fall, and spring is extremely windy, so when we have a very wet winter, our fire danger can go up because of all of the vegetation. This past winter was somewhat dry (although not as bad as the one before it). However the last two monsoons were non-existent, so we really need to make it through this spring and have a good monsoon this summer. Thankfully, we are supposed to have a wet summer. Fingers crossed no idiot decides to come up there this Memorial weekend and light a campfire. We don't have too many incidents of arson, thankfully. Here it's more like negligence.
