Maybe it's just me, but does this spring seem to be exceptionally nice? Maybe it's because of the decent amount of rainfall, or because the temperatures have kept to a reasonable and comfortable level, but it seems to be a little greener and "flowerier" this season than others.

Well . . . it has been really nice for me b/c it has not gotten too hot, too quickly! And yes . . . the rainfall has been appreciated . . .

I pay a price for the blossoms with the allergies problems! But I was thrilled to see winter really end . . .

I hope we have a long Spring and a very pleasant summer.

Gonna get the tomato plants in the ground . . . still need to pick up a few herbs . . .

It has been very nice, and I think part of it is because we've finally gotten some rain.
I just hope it stays this way - not to hot, too wet, or too dry.

I don't know how many of you like to go up towards Boone or Linville, but that area is beautiful right now.

Ohhhhh - one of my favorite areas. Add Banner Elk and Blowing Rock to that list! And the parkway . . .

I think it's been really windy. But the rain is nice, it has made everything green and pretty.

Anifani, don't want to get too OT on this one, but I just planted my tomato, cucumber & StringBean (Green Bean) transplants over the weekend.

The cool thing is that I planted them in hay (straw) bailes.....(sounds funky, but I cut out an 8in deep "trench" in the top of the bail and filled it w/potting soil...planted the transplant and watered w/miracle-gro...

I'll have to figure out how to post a pic....

It actually is a whole lot cheaper to do it this way than plant directly in the ground or even a raised bed....


and yes, the weather's been great so far...

I was just thinking today how nice it is that we actually got a lengthy spring this year. Sometimes it just cruises right into summer, but this mild weather has been fantastic!
