Wow everyone! I just got some time to check out the Wiki. The photographs are great. Thank you Mary Sue and team for making this site start to happen. And thanks to all of you for sharing your photos and ideas! Marguerite - Gardening with bulbs and perennials at 3500 feet in the mountains of southern California. Extreme temperatures in our Mediterranean climate from 0 to 110 degrees F. Average temperatures 15 to 90 degrees F. A few days of snow in winter and a few days of extreme heat in Aug-Sept. Drought conditions seem to be changing to an 'El Nino' year. Rain may be actually arriving next week!
