We will soon celebrate our 2nd year living in the Blue Ridge Mountains and still marvel over the differences and yes, some familiar seasonal changes. In Wisconsin it seemed that we'd have spring from perhaps mid March through April. Then, overnight....summer would arrive.
The process is much longer here. Since the weather isn't harsh, by February we think it's spring, though the wise farmers in this area know it isn't. With one round of blooming flowers and plants appearing in March-April, we now have another......
The fragrances are delicious.....one positive aspect of our twice daily 'forced marches' that the husband and I do in an effort to burn off more calories so we can have dessert!
Now all I need to do is LEARN what all these plants and trees are!!
