The outside temperature was 30 degrees when I fed Spots this morning, and the side table at the gazebo had a layer of ice. I moved the potted succulents at the gazebo against the shelter of the house.
I supplemented the water on front yard succulent garden, potted camellia and transplanted lime green ceanothus. No rain is expected for the next several weeks.
Winter maintenance today was pruning back the royal blue salvia and the second sunset rockrose in the front slope garden. I was periodically dive bombed by hummingbirds, possibly angry at the removal of a favorite source of nectar.
