It is one of the most wonderful seasonal events. They were brown yesterday, green today. Who needs flowers?

mine got buried under 3 inches of snow over the weekend .. right after the 20 to 40 miles hour winds took the wind chill down to single digits..

I know...I'm sorry! I hail from cold climes myself, but have been here for 30+ years. Every time a member of my family asks me, somewhat peevishly, why I insist on remaining so far away, I respond: the weather!
Just remember, snow is beautiful (and insulating).

Snow here as well this past weekend... I'm starting to see a few days with 40-45 temps so I'm hopefull lol.
Great photos by the way!
March is right around the corner, not much longer to wait!
Oh my gosh, just noticed today (THURSDAY) that mine has suddenly turned green too! Ive never paid attention before to the time of the color change. I'm in Sunset zone 15 also. OTOH, my zoysia grass lawn is still brown and my ornamental grasses, which normally sprout new green growth by end of January, are still dormant. Go figure.
