We've managed the first two, but no rain. Australia is heading into the worst recorded drought ever. In our little corner, we have been fortunate in missing drought events over the last few years, but overall , in Australia, the water situation is dire, with some cities having empty or near empty reservoirs. In Goulbourn (near Canberra) not only is there no garden watering, but apparently it is an offence to wash your car windscreens unless it is a traffic hazards. I guess washing the whole car is no longer an option either,
So it's a major El Nino event. If I remember correctly if we have an El Nino summer then the USA has a very bad heavy winter.

Ugh - my sympathies, Colleen. I've seen way too much of that here in
the last 35 yrs. The 'vale' has moved to Oz!

This kind of damage to early spring bloom is what got me interested in
rebloomers. But not much of that this year. :-(

Three hard frosts in a row followed by 80s F and 4 or 5 inches of rain
here has done "interesting" things to foliage. No bloom damage - cut
and brought stalks inside to enjoy - but foliage is turning to mush.
