What a difference a week makes--

Just a week later. A few old granddaddy pecan trees are still holding off; the rest have join into the general welcome and adorned themselves with spring finery!

We've been off in Atlanta celebrating the fresh season with a troop of grandchildren. Lots of ways to have fun in Atlanta--from the world's greatest, and largest, aquarium to hockey (go Thrashers!), the zoo (the Pandos love Pandas!) and a backyard waterfight. Somethings never change.

Is spring here?

The town is blooming and the countryside is not far behind. Wisteria is everywhere. It must be spring. Maybe not! Local lore says that it is not spring until the pecans leaf out. The bottle brush and wisteria, the Carolina silver bell and dianthus say "Welcome!" The pecans are still thinking about it.

Foolin' around in April

What better way to spend a Saturday that just happens to be April 1, than hanging out on the Flint River--doing not much of anything?

Catch a crow taking in the view. Watch families at play. For lunch--fried catfish at a picnic table. (the crow got the French fries!)

It's a great place for a book--or a nap!
