Spring Sprang and Summer is here!

Spring Sprang and Summer is here. I am thinking June in April!!!! What a fabulous time to visit Sand Rock Farm and our part of the Central Coast.

I looked around this morning and saw the fog we call June gloom. (This is still March!!) The sun is shining now on the wild roses in bloom. (These are the ones that the deer don’t seem to like.) The other roses behind the deer proof fence have just begun to open.
Dogwood and Magnolia

The fabulous 65 year old pink dogwood is in full bloom, as is the tulip tree. Lilacs are sending their fragrance down the paths in the Spiral Garden while a few bright yellow daffodils still lurk in the shady sections of the garden.

We still are counting on a bit of rain, maybe Tuesday. This has been the warmest and one of the driest winters on record.

It is really difficult to explain to couples coming to look at Sand Rock Farm for weddings, that after 14 years, I still can not predict the weather a year in advance. (Certainly not like a year we just had.)

Though Spring is warmer than usual, there are still many Spring activities in April.

Earth Day, www.ecocruz.org; the annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Beach, www.capitolavillage.com and Santa Cruz Mountain Wineries Passport Day, www.scmwa.com/events all take place on April 19th.

Come visit. It will be a busy, fun weekend in the Santa Cruz area.
