    We have a layer of yellow dust on everything. Everything flowers about now and the pollen will get so thick you can see it in the air sometimes. I can't wear contact lenses in it. Lots of pretty scenery though.

    It's either Spring or Summer here most of the year so, other than looking at a calendar, I would have to say:

    I Have customers complain about the Swallows that are lost and should be making their nests in Cheryl's and Moreluck's neighborhoods.:wink2:

    Costco begins stocking the Beach towels and beach umbrellas.

    Yep and when playing tennis there are puffs of yellow every time you hit the ball. Maybe that's why my sinuses are so bad ... 2 1/2 hours playing tennis last night.

    I know - we are off to our first pancake breakfast this year on Saturday - always nice to wonder through the woods and by the syrup right from the producer....

    According to the crystal ball reader/meteorologist, Saturday is supposed to be "the biggest snow storm I've seen this late"

    It's not really late for a snow storm...

    But as for spring, my apple tree is blooming!

    Thanks. It's 22 degrees as we speak. My daschunds with their one inch
    legs do not have a good time outside on days like this when they can
    disappear in a drift. Their feet get pretty cold pretty quick; not unusual
    to have to find them and carry them in....

    I know when spring is here:

    1. The mesquite starts budding. That is the #1 indicator here.
    2. The weeds start popping up and over night I can't see my neighbors house. LOL
