It's raining a lot, then doing the typical Oregon thing and sunshining on us like crazy for 20 minutes at a time. The dogwood trees are starting to bloom and I feel spring coming! I recently went to visit Phil and it is much warmer where he is, even though the Bay is known for being mild and cloudy. He has a wonderful backyard know at his home in Palo Alto, with several raised beds. We spent an afternoon at a nursery picking out some seeds to start in the house. I hope they all survive!
