The cars, deck, porch - everything outdoors - is covered with a fine chartreuse colored dusting of pine pollen. A neighborhood walk means gunk in the eyes and a scratchy throat (it feels like inhaling chalk dust). The tomato seedling growth rate is super slow motion, due to a complete lack of consistent warmth, particularly at night.
But - it is spring. Warm weather is inevitable. And it is beautiful out there. Take a look! (just click each pic to advance them)....some of these are from our yard, some from Raulston Arboretum, some from Duke Gardens. Enjoy!
