Garden: Our California "Winter"
Jerusalem Sage. Blooms late spring to early fall.
Lion's Tail. Blooms late summer and early fall.
I hate to break the news to the two of them that it's February. As far from normal bloom times as one can get. We have had an exceptionally warm and dry winter, as I understand the rest of the country is undergoing the same thing overall. We have been between 70F (21C) to 80F (27C) since Christmas with an occasional near 90F (32C) for good measure. My normal turning off of the irrigation has failed to happen at all this year. I certainly hope it's not a sign of a miserably hot summer.
