Flowering gifts keep on giving

We had an unbelievably beautiful early December. Light rains moistened the soil and the hills have turned a vibrant green. For gardeners, December tends to be a “tricky” month. It can be warm and sunny with offshore winds clearing the air, a second summer. It can fool apple trees into producing buds that open into pretty pink blossom, only to be wind whipped and rain damaged, forcing the tree to put on another show in late winter.
