|These Camelia trees are very pretty and start flowering in December here
Here in Portland, Oregon we have had a two week spell of highs in the 60's resulting in the flowering of many spring bulbs and shrubs. It seems a tad too early to be planting to me, but I just received notification from my community gardening that it is time to get started and that they have planted peas in the community plots.

To be honest, I have not even started planning what to grow this year. I know we have not even decided what seeds we are going to share this year. This early spring has taken me by surprise. Take a look at my over wintered carrots I planted at my house last fall. I hope they taste as good as they look.

There is a new addition to my garden at home in the form of a new garden ornament. It lights up at night, but up to this point there has not been enough sun to charge it. It also spins in the wind. I received it this past Christmas.

Most likely it is not going to warm up beyond the 60's. I know you have heard me say that spring seems like the longest season here. Some years it will stay spring like from this time well up to May.
