The photo was taken on March 26. Snow, sleet, and rain. Little sunshine and temperatures still below freezing. Nothing has changed as far as the weather goes, and the forecast is also bad into the second week of April. They’re talking about a weather anomaly; farms, orchards, and nurseries are suffering – everything is a month late already!
And our oleanders…? When temperatures are above freezing and the sun shines a bit, they are checked on and aired out. After next week I will remove the inner sheeting of the protective tents – ventilation then becomes easier. And I need to begin moving them out of their winter quarters; first just the large plants – protected under the arcade, etc. In mid-April, most of them will have to be outside and then their condition can be well-documented also.
