We took a a look today at the partially frozen Paterson Falls! After prolonged frost the Falls didn't disappoint, there were putting on a wonderful Show! It is only a ca 30 minute drive, quite local and most people don't know of itheir existence.
Hope you enjoy!

Those pictures are great as long as I can review them from the comfort of the OC. I'm sitting here in shorts and a t-shirt enjoying the 72 degree weather. All of the plants are back in their places after the one night scare. I took a walk about and saw no cold damage at all. I guess we dodged a bullet.

Ahhh!!! Too cold!!!!! But stunning beauty.

Agreed....I am enjoying the warmth....a lovely, thick, life-giving & warm fog has rolled in this morning, and all epiphytes are loving the moisture Smiling Even the Old Man Palm's beard is dripping. Is he drooling? Drooling
