Spring is Here!

This winter was a tough one for everyone in North America.  In the year of the Polar Vortex, many of my plants didn’t make it through the deep freezes, and I spent all weekend replacing them with heirloom squash and zucchini, tomatoes, peppers and flowers.  In a farewell to the coldest winter in my lifetime, I wanted to share a picture I stumbled across of the Winter of 1940 in Nashville.  Yes, it may have gotten cold this winter, but in January of 1940, the Cumberland River froze over so thick that people could walk over it.  So adieu winter, and here’s to short shorts and tall drinks; bring on summer!
