INCLINE VILLAGE — Well a brief return to winter this week but it did not last long and hopefully it did not eliminate all of my flowers just getting ready to bloom. Thanks Mother Nature for that refreshing blast and of course we can plan on one for sure again in May.
Earth Day is next week and we have lots of activities and festivals around the area with Earth Day Celebrations.
