Now, Jim, maybe that is true where you are, but here we definitely have defined seasons. Autumn days can be very hot but nights are cooler and leaves change color — maybe not as dramatically as up north but I challenge anyone to find a tree any more beautiful than a raintree in the fall! In winter, much to my displeasure, we have many nights in the 20’s and have been known to reach single digits, and days often hover in the 50’s or occasionally in the 40’s. But, even so, the camellias are dazzlingly lovely. Spring is gorgeous with the azaleas and red buds blooming early, followed by dogwoods and magnolias.

Even when I lived further south, I noticed seasonal changes, subtle but there nonetheless.
