I always feel Spring is really the time to think of starting a new year. Since it is the time when flowers start to bloom & the trees start budding and leafing out. Everything is so fresh and new. And the time when we start saying "Here we go again" when our allergies start kicking into full throttle. Fall is my favorite time of year but Spring has it's moments too. I've been hearing the frogs croak and lawn mowers growling. Turtles are in abundance...lined up on any exposed logs in the afternoon sun. Birds are building their nests and mosquito hawks cover the ground. It's also a time when we want to take weekend trips around the state...enjoying all the outdoorsy things in Arkansas. I just heard yesterday that gas prices are going to get up to $3 a gallon by June or July. That will put a damper on our outings...you know for every $1 that gas goes up...Iran earns billions of extra dollars. Maybe we will put more of our efforts into gardening...we could always benefit from more home grown produce...I might even do a little canning this year. That reminds me...I need to make a run to Lowe's SOON.This was taken on a record pollen count day.Tulip tree in full bloom.
