    we had a dip in temps. but we didn't get a freeze. Predicted 36 the last few nights so I covered the pumpkin seedlings and tomatoes I had set out. I thought St. David is less vulnerable for freezing than Bisbee. What a shame. A lot of agriculture around there too. The mesquite is leafing and I was just told this morning by a local that it was a sign that a chance of a freeze is over. After reading your report, I think I will continue to keep an eye on the weather until mid May to be safe.

    There is an entry fee of $5.00 to see the rose bush. The price includes the little history museum too. There is chairs along the perimeter if someone wants to stay a while and a viewing platform in the back to be able to see the canopy. Funny, we tried to peek over the fence to see if it was blooming before we paid to go in. The oldest Lady Banks' in Bisbee wasn't blooming yet. The fence height didn't allow for a sneak peek. As we went around to the entrance, the sign on the door indicated that the bush was in bloom. Doh. Anyway, we didn't mind supporting the museum by paying the fee. Like Bisbee, Tombstone's economy depends on the visitor's dollar.
