Happy Halloween. It snowed yesterday. Not just a few flakes , but real snow – about 3-4 inches worth. There are still leaves on many of the trees so its a surreal world out in the garden this morning. Luckily I spent a lot of time last week working outside, cutting back perennials, tidying up the veggie garden etc. There is still work to do. It is 19 degrees this morning, but the snow will melt and we will be back into the 50’s and 60’s in a few days. Meanwhile….
Tonight we set back the clocks, tomorrow is November. There is still much to do before winter sets in for good.
Red maples are rad. We use the cultivars as street trees in the Santa Clara Valley, but they are of course, not native.
Brugmansias are so sensitive to frost, even here. In the Los Angeles region, they get quite big, and need not protection.
Spectacular shots.It would be my pleasure if you join my link up party related to gardening here at http://jaipurgardening.blogspot.com/2020/12/chrysanthemums.html
