Daniel, I'll google the sunset zones. Sounds interesting.

Everything bloomed about two weeks early due to an unusual warm spell that lasted about four days. And we've had no sustained cold weather this winter. The buds have been setting on the star magnolias for several weeks.
Chris, that is odd about the different bloom times.

The other way around here, Kathy - the regular magnolias bloom in April/May and the star magnolias later.

That should, of course, be like you I don't trust the zoning.

The part of ky I live in has been rezoned from a six to a seven but like Ruth I don't trust it. The yearly fluctuations are just to crazy.

Joan, lilacs are outstanding here. I have five on this property that I've started from one mother plant. And I've given away at least a dozen that I started. The daffodils are in bloom now and the crocuses. Tulips are also blooming. The lilacs will bloom when the weather gets a little warmer. Usually late March early June. But the humidity is unbearable in the summer. Our part of ky is considered sub tropical but it can turn on a dime. My Star Magnolia's have already bloomed but the regular magnolias won't bloom till early June.

Randy, I like your idea of planting a tree in the former hole. Looking forward to learning what tree you find to fit that spot. Hopefully, you'll send along some photos.

Spud, thanks for the information that plain water is better than sugar water for soaking seeds before planting. 

I look forward to learning how your garden grows this year. You have some special skills and I enjoy learning from you.

Kathy, Spokane has been redesignated USDA Zone 6 from Zone 5. I don't believe it! If I were still in Spokane I would be looking for vegetable seeds that mature in 50-60 days. I don't even try to grow the more tender seeds because we always have late and early freezes. I feel sad going into my garden and seeing the ravages of late and early frosts.  Our growing season is too short. I should have moved south, except I like the lilacs, tulips, and daffodils that like cold weather. How do these plants do in your zone, Kathy?

Daniel, I don't know how much trust we can put in our zones anymore. The weather is crazy. There was a program on Vice on HBO that discussed it last night.
