    it has been a long winter...some areas with record colds etc...firewood piles have dwindled to nearly nothing...so its time for a bit of spring....a bit of renewed hope....

    Spring.

    That means only about six more weeks before I can put away the long-johns.

    I'm in shorts and a t-shirt. My garden is in and growing. I really don't know how y'all handle that.

    Back at ya. I am so ready for Springtime.

    I heard the birds outside in the morning for the first couple of days this week then it got cold. It will start warming up here maybe the first week or two into April. We do get a lot of rain along with the warming trend though.

    Spring means lots of dog walks! Glad the cold stuff is on the way out. Gunny I agree; not much of a winter.

    I am finishing up on my first set of tomato plants. Deee lishious. Also summer squash and one acorn squash. All the citrus is blooming along with my one peach.

    I could not move back to where they have that white cold stuff all winter.

    It's a tradeoff.

    Most Mainers live in Maine, I think, because most people don't live in Maine.

    :eusa_shhh:

    Don't tell the cattle here THAT. We might have dipped below freezing a half dozen times. For the most part it was high 40s at night, mid-to-low 60s during the day. It's been 80+ and sunny all week here.

    I blame Chris and his global warming machine.:lol:
