Yup, I think old man winter has left the state......

We've been relishing the beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures.....

......not to mention the splashes of color as the trees and shrubs begin to bloom.

......the wild flowers are up and BBQ's are out. This pleasant view was taken at the home of friends who live at about 3,200 feet elevation. After having some trees removed, they cleverly had the tree trimmer leave a stump higher than usual. Then they hired a chain saw artist who carved it into an eagle....which is MUCH bigger than it appears in this photo. I'm guessing it's about 5-6' tall.

Oh, Mary. Don't count your chickens just yet. It's not *really* over yet.
I don't plant anything until April 6th, and *i* live near Charlotte (the Piedmont)! It's not too late for a heavy frost to swoop in overnight and kill every bloom around.
