The California Horticulturist and Floral Magazine, 1876, Vol. 6 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The California Horticulturist and Floral Magazine, 1876, Vol. 6 The horticulturist has often reason to be interested, if not anxious, about the state Of the weather. The ﬂorist es pecially dislikes either too much rain or too long a drought. The health and good condition Of plants depend much upon the state of the weather and at mosphere. The meteorological 'condi tions of California are quite peculiar as compared with the rest of the States and Territories. The near vicinity of a vast ocean, with several mountain tiers running up and down at different dis tances on our slope, exercise the great est inﬂuence On our climate. We may describe the clouds generally which visit us, as well as other portions of the globe, as visible vapor suspended iii the air at some distance from the level parts of the earth. Possessing the shifting, formless, shadowy character of vapor, becoming visible or remaining invisible, according to minute changes of temperature in different parts of the Sky, they combine outlines with pecul iar striking colors and other character istics, with a capacity for change that is almost unlimited.
