Shopping in a garden center in the spring confronts visitors with an almost dizzying array of new plants with flower colors that seem to go beyond our imagination.
Furry Easter Bunny ears, speckled eggs, baskets galore have been in my peripheral vision this season -- so far. I walked right by them all the other day in my hunt for the perfect flat iron.

Thank heavens, spring is finally here! This winter will go down in history as one of the most brutal ever. In the Golden Triangle, we had a much easier experience than in other parts of the country. Here, there were no blizzards; massive, icy traffic jams; or loss of power. But, lordy, it was cold.
The Golden Triangle is within easy traveling distance of some of the best entertainment in the South. Support arts and entertainment at home, and when you're on the road, these might pique your interest. Be aware that some venues add facility/convenience charges to ticket prices.

Food is very trendy. One trend I have recently observed is that congealed salads are coming back. I love any kind of congealed salad. My mama always had one in the refrigerator when I was growing up. Her mama, my Mamaw, always had one as well. I prepare them occasionally, but my boys never really cared for them. Steve always said they were dessert.
