I noticed that daffodils are already showing green, my rosemary is blooming and my plum tree is budding. These flora events are usually not seen until March which caused me to start looking around for more evidence of spring.
A string trimming neighbor found a California Whipsnake running around the other day. The Whipsnake normally hibernates until March even in the Bay Area. We are used to snakes hibernating at this time of year but in this weather you may want to be more careful because a Whipsnake may not be the only snake running around.
Imagine my surprise when I was out and about in Wheatland the other day and noticed several mosquito bites that evening. It seems the warm weather is bringing those little buzzing blood suckers out as well.
