Warm weather

Another gorgeous day here in sunshine. I know I keep talking about it, but after coming from hazy San Diego and before that cold Rochester, New York I really appreciate it being warm. Rochester yesterday had a date range of 28/22 but today it is supposed to go up to 30. And about a foot of snow on the ground. Well, here we are:

Weather.com says it's 83 here, but feels like 80. Rochester is 30 but feels like 22. For those of you in California and the southeast, maybe you can't appreciate it, but I do. As you can see, it's due to start cooling off, the last day above says 83 for the high.
We moved here last April, and wore our coats for a few weeks before it warmed up. So I know that we probably will be doing it again, and our 'normal' high for right now is supposed to be only 73, but still that's better than 30. And yes, it will be over 110 for several days this summer, but I would much rather sit out in the warm than have to hop into a freezing car and wait an hour for the heater to make it warm enough inside.
Went back to Plant World Nursery yesterday for more flowers.

As you can see, it's all colorfull under the shade, but with stripes of sunshine in this area of the nursery. The birds were all squawking and dancing around, the turtles in their pond were sunning themselves and we filled our trunk with yellow. An assortment of yellow flowers were scattered around, OK, we did get two six packs of red petunias, but all the rest were yellow.
