I am learning there are many Weekend Weddings coming to our area. The local venues provide a unique and beautiful setting in the quiet and peaceful Flint Hills. Sunset weddings are spectacular.
At Spring Street Retreat we especially love to help host these happy occasions as do all the other lodging options that you can find at www.heartoftheflinthills.org.
Hopefully you are noticing what a beautiful time of year it is here in Kansas. Flowering pear, red-bud, crab-apples, forsythia, wild dogwood, daffodils and still looking forward to the tulips and iris.
What a perfect time to be out and about exploring nature. I cannot say enough about the red-buds as they grow wild along the way. The winds have calmed as we still await the rains. We had a mild winter. There were not many weeks that the afternoon temps did not reach into the 40-50 degrees. Still hoping for May flowers after the April showers.
The cardinals are singing all around at Spring Street Retreat. Property owners are out enjoying the fine weather as they are picking up fallen limbs, clearing away remaining leaves, sorting through their garages for things they do not need and can give away or throw away. Homeowners are finding handymen to add a new front door and railing to their front porches and set out their out door furniture to enjoy. They say the "The front door tells a lot about the home".
In case of a late winter freeze, I like to fill the front porch pots first and they can be easily protected. I have started adding lettuce seeds to these arrangements.
I keep spray bottles ready for weed control. Weed control on the lawn and and vegetation control on non-grass areas. It seems regardless of rain the weeds appear.
As any new habit you wish to gain it is best to figure out how to keep it simple and make it easier to do.
