Well there’s nothing like going from a cool spring to immediate hot summer weather. It would have been nice to have a few weeks of 80’s before we hit 90’s and high humidity causing heat indexes in the 100’s, but I guess it is appropriate that the Summer Solstice is...

It’s beginning to look a lot like SUMMER! And it’s about time, right? We are in for some 80’s and 90’s so the tomatoes, peppers, squashes, cucumbers, okra, etc should be happy plants. I don’t know if the basil I have is going to make it or not, but a little sunshine...

Well Mother Nature is not being very kind to us this week. The weather was so beautiful on Monday, sunny and 70, making it tempting to plant anything and everything. Only to drop the temperature down to 30-something Tuesday night with a possible freeze! I am glad I...

Oh my goodness, the spring flora is busting out everywhere! The Dogwood trees and Lilac bushes are in full bloom and things are greening up quickly. Sunday was perfect weather to be outside and we just happened to have lunch right across the street from a greenhouse...

Signs of spring are popping up everywhere! Bright yellow forsythias and daffodils are finishing up, as are the Bradford pears, the tulips are up, lilacs are blooming and the Redbud trees and Quince trees bloomed in perfect time for Easter. I was able to spend some...
