• Davis gardener Gerhard Bock, author of "Bamboo, Succulents and More," reflects on a chilly winter's day:

"Winter is my least favorite time of year. Mostly because I hate the cold, and it's been cold this week. Thanks to an arctic front pushing down from Alaska, our nighttime lows have been right around freezing. …
