What a difference a week can make, especially after coming off a nine inch snow. Temperatures have gone from single digits on up to the upper 60's. I will take this anytime.

9 Inches of Snow

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

I was hoping that I might escape the misery of getting sick this new year, but the dreaded creeping crud is upon me. I had to go and visit Dr. Gary Gallant for the cure to my ailment. It seems that I have bronchitis with a very aggravating cough to go along with it. Maybe by this next weekend, I'll be fit as a fiddle.

I woke up to a little dab of snow this past Sunday morning. Birds were everywhere in my back yard taking advantage of what I offer in my feeders. Even the pesky squirrels were eating from the special feeder that holds an ear of corn.

Winter or Spring, You Choose

Here it is, December the 27th and it feels like late April. This might fool some of the flowers that bloom in early spring, thinking that the possibility of cold weather has passed. I remember one spring that most of the trees had budded out and then were killed off by a freeze. This is supposed to be the results of El Nino

Here we are, in the week of Christmas. I didn't go out and look for birds this week, but wanted to give you a story from my heart. Please bare with me because some of my story is fiction, but the rest of it is pure truth.

Oh boy, what a wonderful weekend we had. My feelings were that it seemed like early May, except that I wasn't planting my vegetable garden. The kids next door have been running and playing in their backyard, but very soon, it will be too cold to do this. Grab it while you can.

This past weekend with the crisp cool mornings and a bit of a warm up has me back out in the front yard planting flower bulbs again. It's hard work, but I will be rewarded with beautiful early spring tulips and buttercups.

It's a shame that this past weekend was not groundhog day. There was no chance that he would have seen his shadow with all of the rain in our area. It would have been nice if it were only six weeks till spring.

Burrrr, Where did all of the warm weather go? Sometimes, I wish I could live down about Key West, where it stays warm all year long. Of course, I would worry myself to death during hurricane season.

Thank the good Lord for such a beautiful weekend. I was able to complete the construction of my new flower bed. I will be planting daffodils, tulips, crocus and hyacinth. There will be a special spot for some seeds that Melanie Kelley gave me before she left for east Tennessee.

What a beautiful Sunday we have had this past weekend. I am hoping to get out in the dirt in my front yard and finish my flower bed. I have purchased several beautiful daffodils and even a few tulips. This might be the last time this year to get a little dirt underneath my fingernails. Daffodils can be a first source of nectar for our returning Hummingbirds.

Still Looking For Eagles

If there was any witches and goblins flying around my neighborhood on Halloween, they probably were soaking wet. This was the first time that I didn't get to hand out a single piece of candy. That doesn't mean that I will get to eat some, since I am diabetic.

Come and Get It, Birdseed That Is

I am writing this article a little earlier than I had planned on because I will be on special assignment, hopefully in Tunica Mississippi and Memphis Tennessee. I am starting to sound like my good friend, Coleman Walker, when he has to be away from the microphone for a period of time.

I'm Not Ready For Winter

Here we go again, cold weather that I am not ready for. I don't mind not having to mow the yard. We are not looking forward to frosty windshields that early in the morning. Maybe, I should invest in one of those carport covers.

Things to Come

It is with great sadness that my best friend and birder, Anthony Gray's mother, Mary Gray, passed away. Like my own mother, she had lived a good long life with plenty of love to go around. I will miss her smiling face when I go over to see them.

Back to doing what comes easy can sometimes be a darn it you do and darn if you don't. Fall is here and I am kind of happy to see the hot days of summer disappear, plus not having to mow the lawn, is also right up there too.

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.

Is fall in the air or what? These temperatures are feeling fine and could stay here all year long. Of course, we need hotter weather to make okra and tomatoes grow. Cold weather is needed for some seeds to germinate, after laying dormant in the ground.

I am hoping that you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend, just like yours truly. The weather has been very warm, but with rain showers in the neighborhood, a cooling factor is applied. I am not sure when my editor is expecting me to have my article sent in, so I am sneaking in this past Sunday, to be able to meet my deadline.

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.

Well, we enjoyed another great weekend with the weather nice and sunny. Since we had the rain back last Wednesday, my garden is thankful. My okra needs rain, but it really produces when the temperature get into the high nineties.
