It's beautiful here in north Georgia. Everything is in bloom, the sun is shining brightly, and the birds are chirping loudly. Oh, and the fireflies are even out at night. It's nice and I love it!

We're planning to begin our vegetable garden this weekend, but it's suppose to rain tomorrow so that may have to wait until next weekend. I already have a few seedlings growing here in the house, but nothing more than tomatoes and peppers.

So what's everyone up to? How's Spring treating you? :)

we have a south facing garden so when it finally stops raining for more than a day it will be lovely but it's due to start raining again on sunday and Monday (well its a bank holiday so that goes without saying)

Spring has arrived here in Toronto, but in reverse order. Most of April was sunny and warm, what the weather is usually like here in May.

So far May has been cold, overcast and rainy. The way spring usually is in April.

Toronto has strange weather. :rolleyes:

Rob, somehow I forgot you were a Canadian as well. We're a gazillion miles apart but having the exact same weather. I'll let you know when it warms up here so you can haul out your speedo! ;>

Oh, gosh, it's been spring for ages! :-) Our bulbs like the daffodils and tulips have already finished and we're now into roses and honeysuckle, which are gorgeous and smell heavenly. The hummingbirds have returned and I'm seeing a lot of other birds like warblers on their way to their summer homes. It's beautiful.

I'm happy to see that many are getting nice weather. Hopefully those of you still lingering in winter will have warmer weather soon.

I love spring. I'm a terrible winter person. I need warmth and lots of sunshine!

We have blooms on the blackberry bushes and the honeysuckle vines. We're even talking about setting up our pool. It's soooo nice! Unfortunately, it has rained every weekend for like 2 months. And the hubby hates that because he can't get outside to work around the house when he's off work, but it's gorgeous during the week. :lol: Poor guy.

We spent a day at our local Renaissance Festival the weekend before last and we all came home with bright tan lines. :lol: I'm ready for summer vacation!! Only 2 months to go until I hit the beach. YAY!

The hubby & I always take the girls to Tybee Island, Georgia for a week in July. We all look forward to it the whole year. We rent a condo on the beach with day trips to Savannah. It's a blast!
