also have had a couple of days of mild weather here. don't think there is much a problem of "breaking dormancy" unless such weather persists for a week or more. that said, many "hardy" plants are probably not that deep in dormancy at this relatively early date and warm spell or not. moreover, a sudden on-set of significantly cold weather would potentially harm a lot of plants---especially eucalyptus and bottlebrush and other plants that are of "borderline" hardiness because they either go dormant rather late or never become fully dormant.
