Has anybody had experience/success with planting bulbs (Big Bear)? My parents aren't up here full time. They come once a month or so to check on things and water plants. They had a row of evergreens up against the front of the house and had to remove them because they were combustible. This left an ugly block foundation exposed. I'm thinking of planting bulbs in that bare space. I'm spending all or part of the summer up here and will be able to water as necessary. I got some paper white narcissus as a gift years ago. I planted them in my Joshua Tree yard and those things keep coming back year after year but It's so hot that they don't last long.

Hi Eva,

I have some tulips and irises that magically appear every spring. I also get some daffodils and crocuses but I don’t know if they are bulbs. But I don’t do anything with them other than waiting for them to appear.

I think you may need a cold snap and then warm weather together going.

Good luck

Most of those bulbs last a couple of weeks in the spring only. Daffodils are the only ones the critters don't seem to like the taste of. You might be better off buying a wildflower mix seed and spreading it that will stay blooming all summer

Thank you! I did read something about putting bulbs in the freezer before planting. I'll stick the ones I have on hand in the ground and go get some wildflower seeds too.

I have volunteer tulips every year in spite of the fact the rabbits and other vermin seem to dig them up every spring The neighbor has lots of daffodils because the vermin dont like them.

Daffodil are not edible to squirrels, which will be an important feature when their population increases. Other bulbs will be ok for the current population, but will get wiped out when the are more squirrels. As pointed out, they only bloom for a couple of weeks. Lilacs may be a good choice for low maintenance shrubbery. Again, they only bloom for a few weeks. If watering is an option, Shasta daisies do well in BB and will bloom all summer. They winter over nicely.

I was at Costco today the high was around 75. I think we may see some sizeable rain in July. Seems like we are still in a favorable weather patterns we saw through the winter! [Click Here]

The other bit of bad news from Verizon was that older phones (I have an iPhone 8s) are going to have slower service when this upgrade is finished.

That's true, Benny. Nothing is set in stone. It can change. You are the expert when it comes to the weather, so you're a reliable source.

Regarding the Verizon service issues, Instopped by the Verizon store in the Staters center. I was told that towers are being upgraded for 4 & 5 g service. And that it was going to take a while longer. The person who helped me did something to my phone to reboot it & so far so good. Hubby is over there now having his phone looked at. I don’t understand why we customers weren’t told this was going to happen.

Not aware of any fires critter....
Dunno what you look at Quakes but nothing beyond 7 days is reliable, and even then iffy at best. Long range forecast models hinting at our first surge in monsoon moisture towards early July, so we could see some afternoon thunderstorms around independence day!
