Pineapple Express

Leave a comment

??????????

Most often, our winter weather comes from Alaska in the north, which brings the cold and wet.  When unusually warm weather comes from Hawaii, far to the southwest, this late in the year, it is called a “pineapple express”.  We have had particularly warm weather most of this fall.  There was a brief freeze a month ago, but no extended hard cold, which would be more common at this time of year.  The grass is green and growing, the weeds are filling in everywhere they can.

This rose is trying hard to bloom.  It might have better luck, but we’ve had quite a bit of rain lately.  The most recent forecast is a diminished chance of rain for a few more days, so the rose still has a chance to open.
