Time for Spring
Friday, March 21, 2014
Officially Spring is here, and the weather put on a fabulous, warm, sunshiny show for us today...
I'm going to wait a few days before I plant my tomatoes, though....the mesquite trees have not yet budded, and the old timers swear that if the mequite trees haven't budded out, then there's still a chance for frost.... ( I use to laugh about Old Timers, and now I think I AM one!)
“I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?" — Edward Giobbi
“I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.” — Ruth Stout
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” — Margaret Atwood
