It's December 30th and of course we've got crazy garden things going on in Southern California. The dafodils have sent up leaves every winter since I've lived here, but this is the first year it has bloomed. The peach tree with multiple varieties has open blossoms, and an aloe has sent up a bloom shoot. The fig tree is the only thing doing what it should - dropping its leaves. I pulled all the remaining leaves off the peach trees since they are budding. So the experiment for 2012 is the leave the buds/blossoms (instead of knocking them off because they were too early as I did in 2011).
