...strange land, having not really talked to folks across the country so very much (only been doing this forum thing for a year or so), and wanting to get a gauge on how the seasons are coming along....
How many of you are seeing blooms and blossoms? Up here in Oregon's Willamette Valley, the trees are covered with pink and white and light green, the tulips, daffs, and other bulb plants are out for all they're worth, and my dogwood tree is about to bust out great guns. What's it doing where you are? :)

Here in southern WI the tulips are just poking up. After last weekend's 2 days of rain the grass turned green Monday. The Pear tree buds are starting to green up. And the Amarylis is blooming as of today. But it's Spring 'cuz I saw a Robin last week.

No blooms or blossoms yet. Buds on the trees, roses. Grass is green. Soon.

The dogwood blooms have come and gone here. Butter Cups, Indian Paint Brushes, Blackeyed Susans and Bluebonnets are going crazy. Red Clover should be any day now.

Tulips and jonquils are up, Bradford pears and plum trees blooming, grass needs to be mowed in the yard, and the pasture grass is growing faster than the animals can eat it. I haven't seen any morel mushrooms yet, but I know it won't be long.

Morels poisonous or edible? I've heard the name, but I can't remember if it was in the hoity toity gourmet section of the grocery, or in the "stay the heck away from" section of my herb books. :)

Sometimes I wonder if the fine folks to the South have any real concept of 'Winter'...

Just witnessed the most beautiful (red)sunset
I ever saw, maybe the rain's over for a few
days. Down here in the south, my dogwoods just
started bloomng today. daff's been blooming a
couple of weeks, Bradford pear trees already
bloomed and are now fully leaved.
Beautiful time of year. "Spring is in the air"

Summer is here in Texas just about :) We had spring two days last week if I remember correctly.
Most all the hardwoods have leaves now and my pecan trees are budding. Grass is growing like a weed too!

My brother lives in El Paso... he sent me these two boxes of pecans he got roasted a few years ago. The only thing was, the shells were so thin it was hardly worth the effort to crack them out for baking and what all. Is there some specific special sneaky way to crack thin-shelled pecans so they don't end up little teeny tiny fragments?

Yep!!!    Posted 03-31-2004 at 16:19:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
Use a teeny tiny hammer!! LOL!

Sorry....could not help mahself!

Clipper: the goofy :^)

Melanie- who couldn't help HERself... (evil grin)
