Spring preview this weekend
One of the nice things about living in the South is that you get the occassional warm up smack in the middle of winter. This weekend was like that. Two weeks ago we had ice and snow. Yesterday and today we had temps in the low 70's. I spent just about the entire weekend outside and have the rosy nose (and clean truck) to prove it. We've had some forsythia bloom here and there and if you look close you can see the first and over-eager bulbs popping up to take a peek. Before you know it we'll get another cold blast that sends us back inside in search of warmth but it was a great preview of things to come in about another 6 weeks! To me, that is the start of the new year, not some random day on a calender but the day the plants wake up start smiling again.
