    Hey everyone! Hows spring treating you?! I threw down some new mulch as home depot has it a dollar a bag this week.

    Then the kids threw on their swim suits and grabbed the super soakers and ran around the yard for hours! They complained after a while about being cold but I told them, "Suck it up! Its only 75 degrees!"

    Has your spring sprung?! :-)

    Kalanchoes doing very well (Tooner can attest to that)
    10 or so lemons on the dwarf lemon tree.
    Flowering plum tree has flowered, and now has the beautiful deep red leaves it will wear 'til Nov.
    Azaleas are out......we have the pink/fuscia color
    Ready to plant our tomatoes now.......have to decide, but I like Goliath the best

    I'm jealous of all the talk of trees & shrubs flowering. Daytime temps here have only been 40-42 & I've got a foot of snow I'm my yard. My dogwood trees & azaleas are far from being in bloom. I need some green grass too.

    Got my spring yard work started. Yup. Shoveled the snow off a few of the gardens & pulled the last of the heavy snow off my spreading yews. I wish I had more time. Woulda snow blown the lawn, maybe edged & mulched the shrub beds too. I WISH!

    An inch of snow on top of about a 24 inch snow pack. It will be at least 2 weeks before we see brown lawns.

    Although, I did go by a sugar bush and saw lots of tapped trees. So there is that.

    Oh and I saw an eagle sitting on eggs (guessing on that, the timing is right though) on Thursday and Friday.

    Got my motorcycle out yesterday to try and go for a ride, but the roads that are in the shade are glare ice. Turns out they are slick on the motorcycle and downright dangerous on a bicycle. Whoda thought.

    50 is about the cutoff for me on any riding I have a choice about.
