Spring in the air


Forget that arctic blast you feel hitting your face every time you leave your home these days. New York may be in the deep freeze, but hints of spring are in the air-- well, in the ground. Stepping out on my terrace for a quick weather check yesterday, I noticed that pots of parsely that I thought were long dead thanks to the cold, were actually growing! And then I saw buds sprouting on my Hydrangea. No kidding! I didn't think plants could grow through sustained freezing temperatures. But there were the green shoots and purple buds rising from the soil. So as I pack up my skis this weekend and head to even colder territory, I can leave with the assurance that soon enough, I'll be planting our crops for 2010. And it can't come soon enough. The supermarket produce is killin' me!

Hey, thanks so much for posting this original and unique article. I can't tell you how many times I've visited blogs
from Google and they've got nothing on them but crappy ads and false information that's unereliable. I don't
normally comment on blogs, but I just thought that i'd drop you a line and tell you that I think you're doing a fantastic job.
Thanks! if you want, you can check out my blog at Stihl Chainsaws

Hello,

I'm just browsing sites for the kids of Haiti.

I'm doing this for a non-profit organization that gives their time to
creating oppurtunities for the children in haiti. If anyone wants to give money then this is the place:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They give kids in Haiti books and teach them.

Yes, they're real.

I greatly appreciate anyone's help

Nice to see a dash of spring while coming in out of all this snow! Thanks for that, it'll help keep this wintry day looking forward to fresh shoots of green and warmer temps.
