RE: signs of spring/flowers in winter

Well, how about hearing what's blooming here? The scabiosas are STILL
going strong, much to my surprise, the rosemary, violas, pansies, one of
the mahonias, some alyssum, the camellia is just about done and the
winter honeysuckle started yesterday.

What a fragrance. Going to head back out to enjoy it before that blasted
cold front gets here this afternoon. Won't be quite as balmy here this
coming week, sigh. 65 now - should be down in the 30's by sunset.
