Leftover flowers from NJ.
Gary, Ind 57 with lo of 47 tonite- breeze is cooler than it needs to be..but the day was good.
Prunus serrulata and one I didnt get verified as another prunus- tho petals were drifting everywhere.
Ummm Kelli? You have no Calif accent, but occasionally a strange Texas accent creeps out. Was curious where its blended from...

Dry start to the day but rains really coming down this afternoon. Breezy with it as well. Forecast to continue into the night and then be a dry weekend.
Article in todays paper says strong El Nino forecast. Long spell of westerly winds in March pushed warm water to the east Pacific. No hurricane forecast yet. People are nervous this year after Iselle last August.

Some nice normal spring days the past couple days, even turned the AC off. 58/79/59 and sunny.

Beautiful blooms, Mike.

I too noticed Kelli's accent having a bit of Texas drawl in it. She sounds a bit like me, I'm a bit Calif, TX, East coast and southern. No one can figure out where I'm from because I'm from everywhere. ☺

Some of my spring garden shots....And this is just my backyard. ☺

Mike, those are tree philodendrons http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/37036/ , they are over 20 years old. They're getting flowers now and seem to open in the dusk to dawn hours and will emit such a sweet smelling perfume...I think this is a male flower ☺.

Beautiful Hawaiian weather, moderate showers at night, gentle trade winds and nice sunny skies with white fluffy clouds during the day. Gets a bit warm and humid but that's good for the Orchid cactus, not so good for gardening.
