We're drowning in RAIN!

It's been raining, A LOT! It's Monday night and it has been raining since Friday of last week! Still 2 more days of rain to come...Can't believe how much rain is coming down! My plants are starting to be water-logged, the strawberries are rotting before they ripen, the lettuces are starting to grow white mold, the oranges taste watered down.... argghh...

So this is Christmas Season in SoCal...

Gorgeous golds!
These bell shaped blossoms are on a succulent that flowers in Dec.
Oh, these roses are so beautiful! They're red and green, perfect holiday colors!
