{Disarmed} TB: Oldies


We've had an extremely dry winter, which has meant lots of frosts, but also warmer days. eg there is a light frost at the moment, but tomorrow is supposed to be at least 35oC (95oF) as the winds swing round to the North and blow from the hot dry interior of the country.
We have a very Californian climate. Wet cold winters and hot dry summers but not this year. So far our driest month has been August, only 18mm (less than an inch) and this should be our wettest month. Whereas Jan- Mar we had more than usual rain, with 25-35 mm each month.
I've attached another oldie photo. Portrait Of Larrie. For a truly clear sky blue this is almost unbeatable.

Colleen, it is so nice to see your pictures. Did you have a warmer winter this year? Or did spring arrive earlier than most years?

Here's a few photos of some of my favourite oldies so you can enjoy our season with me.
As an indication of how early the season is, my photos of Living Free last year were taken on 29th Oct and 2 Nov and here it is flowering on the 8th Oct. Interestingly Sneak Preview is flowering at it's usual time. Everything is out of order this year but generally very early.
Pleased to have some decent looking blooms as we had a heavy frost on Friday morning.
