I spent yesterday doing laundry and cleaning inside so that this weekend could be all about playing outside.
I cut a few of the rose bushes back before the green waste was taken earlier in the week but there are many more bushes to go and the fall leaves are right where they fell last November.
Every year I say that I'm going to keep up with the leaves from our mature California Ash trees but they have the nerve to fall during the busy holiday season and my best intentions are soon forgotten.
I could put it off a while longer but the weather is perfect right now and if I wait the rain or heat could arrive at any time and then I'll be sorry.
filling up with beautiful pansies and snap dragons and I won't be able to withstand the temptation to buy a few six packs (or twenty) and I will have no where prepared to plant them.
February and March are Southern California at it's finest. Have you started to think about your spring flowers, yet?
