Hallmarks of Winter

The signs of Winter in Southern Callifornia are subtle, but they are there. You know it's winter when:

1. The grass is bright green but covered with fallen leaves:

2. Moss pops up in shady areas (it disappears completely in the summer):

3. Citrus trees are laden with fruit, and it's time to harvest the persimmons:


4. Hydrangea bushes, previously cut back, are already setting up leaves for the coming spring:

5. Violets are in bloom:

6. There's raindrops on the roses:

7. Wind and rain have scrubbed the skies clean, and the brilliant white clouds and shocking blue sky take your breath away:
