Enjoy spring flowers

Since we are fast-approaching May 15, the threat of frost should be no more.

We should all be safe to plant our annual flowers now and enjoy them through summer.

The neighborhoods are already looking welcoming with the green grass and colorful hanging baskets and pots appearing on the porches and patios of our community.

Hopefully, everyone is enjoying the warmer weather we are having.
