As I write this article, Spring is only one day away. One might expect it to start off warm, but no such luck. We will have to wait up until May before we can plant our tender vegetables such as home grown tomatoes.

The weatherman said it was coming, but we were not sure of how much we would receive. Here at my house, the snow measured nine inches. Thank goodness we went to the grocery store on Thursday and stocked up on the staples we would need to get us through the blizzard
Here we are starting toward the end of September, in a dry period that will finish off my garden. Usually I will have to pick tomatoes the day before frost is forecasted. Most of my plants have already dried up. I will miss my home grown vegetables, especially my mators. I would guess now is the time to sow turnip greens.

If you get lucky on the right day, you will find me and Anthony Gray, or maybe even a guest, let you in on what's going on in my article, Our Feathered Friends.
Please say goodbye to the Wilson County Fair till next year. My poor old feet has taken a beating, almost to the point of tears. It all started last Tuesday night where I was singing in the Fiddlers Grove Melrose Church.
It's here again. I do mean the Wilson County Fair. It doesn't seem like a full year has come and gone again.
Another beautiful weekend was available to any of us who were willing to get out and enjoy it. For me this has been a great opportunity to get down on my knees and do a little work in my garden.
Oh my poor tired feet. I feel like I have walked a hundred miles in the past two days, but I really know better. It was so very good to see old friends and make some new ones at the 38th Annual Elsie Quarterman Glade Festival.
Thank the good Lord, Spring is finally here, with sunshine and warm temperatures. I am almost ready to do some serious camping, out to cedar forest.
It sure was nice to finally be able to get back into my regular routine of Saturday bird watching. After our Peking fix, Anthony Gray and I thought it would be a good idea to check out the old blown-out bridge on Cedar Creek at North Dickerson Chapel Road.
What a rollercoaster ride with the weather this weekend. Saturday started out with decent temperatures, wearing only a lite jacket. After leaving our, Lebanon Senior Citizen Center Valentine Dance, I almost froze walking the short distance to our car.
Another beautiful Saturday was had by all who wanted to get out and enjoy it. Driving by the Don Fox park, I could see that it was very crowded, with many folks walking in the sunshine almost elbow to elbow.
What a beautiful Saturday we had right in the midst of Winter and it should hang on for a few more days. It was great to get outside and not have to wear heavy coats.
How many of you had trouble pushing yourself away from the dinner table Thanksgiving Day? I know that I did, especially going to two dinners.
By the time you get to read this, The Wilson County Fair will be just two days away. I have already mentioned our, The Wilson Post, will be set up in the large white tent right next to the pageant building.
If I had to describe my weekend at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park's annual Elsie Quarterman Cedar Glade Wildflower Festival, I guess I could sum it up in a simple cliche, "a great time was had by all".
