Is It Summer Or Is It Winter?

I want to plant a flower or two or three. Whoa girl it's still February. We are about to wear  our air conditioners and heaters out. Some days we use one and some days we use the other. Some days it's cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon so we use both in a days time. Our Arizona Ash trees are budding out but I would bet they get nipped and have to start all over. We had one hard cold spell which didn't seem all that cold to me. It must have been though because it killed a lot of trees and bushes in different yards around. I have a large bed of all green plants that mostly survive the winter but this year that one spell damaged some variegated ivy for the first time. I hope some of it can survive and spread again.

We're having some warmer than normal temps for a few days and then it's supposed to go below normal again for a few days - I believe we are already beginning transition!

It was 64 today and going back into the 20's on Thursday. LOVE the idea of flowers. They always lift one's spirits.

I know....here too. All our hibiscus froze, and some fragile yard plants [that are mainly houseplants actually] froze, and not it's in the 80s by afternoon. This morning the outdoor thermometer tells us it's 70!?!! At 5:30 a.m.?

I was just saying to Thomas today that I'd better prune my lilac and my flowering almond and rose of Sharon if I'm going to do it, because as warm as it is and is expected to be this weekend, things will probably start budding out.
