I enjoy spring, I really do, but this year it seemed to be just out of reach. I live in coastal Mississippi where the average yearly temp is , oh 80 F. But, this year spring has barely risen above 60 on most days. I dont mind really because I prefer cooler temps but...those temps don't allow for things like the blooming of roses-my bushes are full right now, tomato, cucumber, pepper, squash and watermelon plants that are showing flowers, or blackberry and blueberry bushes that are sprouting. Now, since these things have been happening for over a week you would thing I would have believed spring was already here but, BUT I got definite proof this morning. I have two asparagus peeking green heads up from their nest of dead brown roots. Yeah, spring is definitely here!
