I should add that I work here at the campus & live in Pinole.  I'm an
almost single mom with very limited time.  I still an a newbie to
gardening.  I have a nice little plot at home - but the hill behind me
needs A WHOLE LOT of preparation/perspiration before I can really start
planting.  I've started little areas with budleia, gaura, mexican sage &
some annuals tossed in (literally).
This cold snap caught me by surprise as I had planned to take cuttings of
the budleias and never got around to it.  Plus I have several containers of
plants that I failed to protect.  But the good part is that I get to spend
some more quality time browsing Berkeley Horticulture.
