that things are blooming faster this year than last? I mentioned this to my neighboir and she agreed. We both wander in the woods alot and we both have noticed that the Wild Blackberries are already turning black. THis is way ahead of their usual time. Also black walnuts are already falling. Is this an omen of what to expect this Fall and Winter?

Thoughts anyone?

Maybe an early start?

Unless you had an early start on spring?

Every thing is extra slow around here!

My fish are growing like crazy, one jumped this morning and almost scared me with how big it was and the sudden movement! :{D

I just planted 3 Black Walnuts and a Bur Oak Friday, they already seem rooted in good! :{O

Noooooo not an early start

Noooooo not an early start here. It was wet and cold. I htought that would have slowed things down but it's like everyhing is on fast forward!
