Crossover Day 2004

Crossover Day 2004

This is a banner crossover day, one between a warmer season in San Diego North County (Inland) and our cooler season.

Today we picked: Roses (five varieties), Plumeria, Hibiscus, Oranges, Tomatoes, Tangerines, Lemons, and Grapefruit!

The flowers may continue for several more weeks (today’s high at my home will be 78 degrees), and the citrus will continue for the next six months but cooler weather approaches, but the appearance of Oranges, and the lower rate of Tomatoes presages several months of nighttime fires in our Soapstone wood stove.

(This is mostly for effect — my long-suffering wife is from New England, so the fires begin when the first cloud appears in the sky, or the first drops of rain announce “Winter”…)

Today was the crossover day when everything in all seasons comes on the same day.

Although this “Crossover Season” may only last a few weeks, it is a day to celebrate!

(And, is there also a large amount of Schadenfreude involved!)
