Back again after an uneventful winter and a warm late winter over all.  we spent the month of February near Orlando Fla. It was difficult to get enthused over the ‘village’ and the area in Central Fla. Our home away from home  was stellar for a manufactured place.  the community seemed to be not a tight village but had a couple of different factions at odds over monetary problems. Surprise, huh?

So now we are home again and enjoying the warm late winter. it’s easy to explore the garden and cheer on the early bloomers.  however its hard to best the gardeners south of the Mason -Dixon line.  So far I have found a couple of lone crocus’ surviving from when we first began gardening this yard and failed to realize that the squirrels and chippies would feast on the bulbs.
