    Default Winter GDG

    To my Northern friends. FYI we have the yellow flowers on the side of the road and elm trees starting to bud. The end of winter is near thankfully, it has been a bad one.

    Thumbs up

    Was "chilly" today near Ft. Worth..... about 55-60 degrees!

    Once early June hits though, we will be in the 90's and wishing we were living in the northern US.

    That means the water moccasins are soon to follow.

    That sucks!! Flowers! We have banks like above but not as high and from drifting snow. 1-2 feet of snow. Quite a bit of our snow melted when we had the rain. Much ice on top now which is annoying. I can only hope we see flowers soon!
