Down on the central coast of California we are still waiting for rain,
which is promised for Thursday through the weekend.  Chilly monrings,
occasional light frost, dry, watering the garden for the fifth weekend in a
row.  In terms of bulbs I only have Nerines and two kniphofias blooming,
Zantedeschia aethiopica in bud.
