October 10

We just returned from five days in Victoria. The weather is about 10 degrees warmer and there are plenty of flowers still in bloom. In fact, becasue of the late summer, the blackberries are still ripening.
I haven’t been outside to see the full extent of what is left in my yard. Last night it appeared the rosemary and the petunias outside were fine. The forecast is for lows about 1 or 0 w/ a mix of rain/snow.
