Well HELLO Zone 9A!

I don't know about you, but with the new hardiness zone map issued recently, I am apparently a half-zone warmer than previously extrapolated.

Seriously, I'd been feeling the shift all along but thought it was mostly a lack of hormones.....

What about you?  Are your extreme minimum temperatures higher than previously projected?  This could mean some expensive errors at the nursery for ahem!, caff!, some of us.  (And no, Virginia, the new projections are not reflective of global climate disruption.  They are rather the results of better computer models based upon more specific information made available since the last zone maps released in 1990.)

I wanted to be amongst the first...

to wish you good fortune in the Chinese Year of the Dragon...

If the weather here in Texas continues on in its dragonesque tendencies, we'll all face challenges in managing our plants, much less our expectations.  That said, the milder days have brought some relief we ought to enjoy while we can!
