Spring is finally here and the trees are all starting to leaf out. Pollen is bad for all the allergy sufferers and cars are coated with it.The songbirds are up early singing and the mourning doves serenade the neighborhood each morning. We are all very glad to see the end of a long winter and the beginning of milder days.

Nature is perking up and more green can be seen in the forests and fields. Please be careful of ticks on your walks and during gardening. It is still a little too early to plant your tomatoes, etc., but lettuce and other cool weather crops are fine to put in.

Please let me know of any birthdays, anniversaries or other events going on in town.

Thought for the week: "I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time." - Robert Browning
