Before the rains and winds of last weekend, Altadena was enjoying Spring. Early Spring. The weather was in the 80s, the bees were out doing their thing, and our yard was in bloom. The husband and I, inspired by all the color and sunshine, visited nurseries and got our hands dirty with yard work. I was even able to convince Mr. Farmer to buy a few marigolds, or ornamentals as he calls them, to plant out front. Sure we can't eat these, but they make me smile.
