Wild weather week.
I am 5 miles from New Mexico and 50 miles from Old Mexico at 4500 ft in the Chiricahua Mtns. First 50+ mph winds, followed by an Alaskan freight train. I had a low of 24 that is unheard of in October. We donÂt usually get a freeze until late November, early December. Gone till next year S. leucantha, S. guaranitica, S. dorisiana. All the S. greggii had the buds burned, but after 3 days and 78 degree temps are blooming again. S. microphylla are on the fence not quite mush, but close. I do have some S. elegans in pots on a cart I rolled into the barn at night.
I am still getting 3 hummingbird species and about 20 birds coming to the feeders that I put in the barn also. Still getting Magnificent, AnnaÂs, and Black-chin.
