What’s Growing On (chapter 2)?

It is early spring here in North Carolina there are a lot of things “growing on”. We have had a pretty good winter so far, it has been average compared to our normal winter. We have had some extremes on the high and low side of the thermometer. It is warmer in Billings, MT than it is here in Raleigh. The mercury says we are struggling to hang onto 43 degrees. It’s windy too, the wind-chill has us at about 33 degrees. There is a cold front out there that will drop us to 18 degrees tonight, which is chilly for here.

It also looks a bit chilly in St Augustine, FL at 53 degrees right now.

Anyhow, even through our cold spells we are looking at serious change on the ole homestead. We are still planning our move north. We’ve got a nice burr under our saddle-blanket cramping our move plans. The guy responsible for the clean-up is trying to argue with the state of NC about the removal of the curve ball. It will likely delay us a few months at most, but not inevitably. We’ve got to sell this house!

Most of the changes around here have been with the plant life. Here are pictures of change around here today.

Even though it doesn't snow here, we still have a spring of sorts. While out walking with my sons today, I saw some new leaves budding on the trees and we have the dandelions starting to blossom here in LA as well.
