McComb, Pike County, MS "Spring Has Finally Sprung!"
Spring is really here in Southwest Mississippi, as evidenced by all the profuse blooms in the area.  Dogwoods, Bradford pear trees, wisteria, and of course, azaleas galore!  Above is a photo I made last week showing the changing of the seasons in my own yard: pansies still in bloom as gladioli stems make their way up all around the same flowerbed.  (Can you see the bird feeder in the background?)
Come enjoy the season with us as Pike County, MS, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Pike County Lighted Azalea Trail March 24 through April 5.  On the agenda … (1 comments)

View from the driver's seat.
This is the time of year when Southwest Mississippi gets hit hard with pine tree pollen.  Some places of the country have dust storms; I guess you could say we have pollen storms.  The greenish-yellow substance covers everything-cars, especially.  You might as well not wash your car until it's all over, because the next day it'll be covered again!  Sometimes you could even see the pollen blowing in the wind!  But the last week or two has seemed more intense than usual (witness the pictures!).  When … (0 comments)

Spring is on its way . . . !
This morning I noticed the beautiful Bradford pear trees beginning to bloom! Redbuds are also making their appearances, and dogwoods won't be far behind.  A week or two ago the daffodils started popping up everywhere, and we've had Carolina jessamine and even azaleas blooming during the winter, due to this haywire weather we've been having! Gladioli stems have been rising from their flowerbeds, and irises are preparing for their show.  It won't be long!  But guess what was predicted for this weekend?  Snow!!!  I guess I could have titled … (6 comments)
