Hope everyone had an enjoyable Mother’s Day. We went to OKC to see Donnie and Becky and grandsons. The day started off coolish but by afternoon the sun came out so we bought some flowers and planted several of their pots. There is nothing better than spending the day...

I love this time of year because everything is coming out of the winter sleep. There are all kinds of flowers blooming, the grass is greening up and the trees arefull of new foliage. Even the birds are chatty like they know spring is here. We have all been waiting to...

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...

Well April is finally here! We had a full moon this week and the weather was warm and sunny over the weekend, and a little windy a couple of days. I think we are supposed to hit a low in the 30s some time this week so we aren’t finished with winter yet. Our last...

Hey Grand Lakers – The first day of spring is Saturday, March 20th! So winter is officially over and so far we have avoided another freeze. It would be nice to have a perfect spring, like last year. It stayed cool long enough to benefit the cool weather crops...

It’s really feeling like spring and I’m finally getting the gardens and pots cleaned out and ready to get planted. Well, my lawn guy is doing all the work because I have a pulled muscle and can’t do the yanking and lifting. Anyway, the gardens will get a boost of...

Welcome back to normal winter weather…and sunshine!! What a crazy two weeks of ice and snow that was. I’m done with that kind of weather, although we did have some really good snow ice cream. It’s been a long time since we had good enough snow to make snow ice cream....

Well it is real hard to think about gardening when the ground is covered in snow, it is zero degrees outside and the wind has been howling for 4 days. The official groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, sure put the whammy on us with six more weeks of winter. I hope they...
