It's official....Spring is here!!!  According to the calendar, at least!!!  Now, I've lived here long enough to know that anything can happen weather wise in March.....even though it was 74 degrees today that doesn't necessarily mean it's here to stay...but as long as it is, I'm going to take advantage of it!!!

There's nothing like a burger on the grill when the sun is shining and the birds are singing.....


served with Canellini Bean salad and potato salad!!!
The canellini bean salad is really good and pretty healthy, too...give it a try!!!

Canellini Bean Salad

2 cans Canellini Beans, drained and rinsed
Half of a seedless cucumber
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
1/2 medium onion, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

Toss beans, cucumber, tomatoes, onion and garlic together.  Drizzle with Olive Oil; add salt & pepper to taste.  Refrigerate until chilled.

...and it's hard to believe that it's March 20 and I can walk through my yard and see new growth....I love the color GREEN....

...beautiful new growth on my day lillies...I can't wait to see these orange flowers...

...buds on my dwarf rhododendron.....these will be bright pink when it blooms...

....and buds on my weeping cherry tree (not to mention the GREEN grass)...

I don't have anything in bloom in my gardens right now, but if these temps stick around, I can't imagine it will be too much longer....can't wait to post pics when everything is in bloom!!!

Hope everyone has a chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine!!!

'Til Next Time...
