Spring is finally here!!

Spring!! It's been a long time coming seems to much snow, rain , hail,sleet and generally just cold and dreary this Winter...and in NC of all places...

The trees always put on a good show in it's own time...I'll be glad when the green leaves come...the buds are beautiful, snow white and full as can be...but they stink to high heaven with all their beauty...until the leaves come I can't stand to be out there with them...they bother my allergies too..
At the first glimpse of Spring my thoughts go to the pleasures it will bring for awhile..We love cooking and eating outside...and cooking fish outside is one of the pleasures, Glad I didn't have to run to the store to get some Whiting..(one of our favorite fish, that my son brought to us on one of his surprise visits :o)...As you can see we wasted no time in putting some in a pan on such a warm and sunny day..

  All the smells stay outside.. there is some
thing about the fresh air and cooking outside
that gives a whole new taste to food...We
always enjoy fish cooked that way...and I
don't have to worry about boiling some
vinegar and water inside to kill the oder, inside

Ahhh, spring is the best. Cooking outside is a treat, it keeps the mess out of the kitchen! I know what you mean about the smell of the Bradford Pear trees. Ugh. They are gorgeous, though.

Oh I agree. When I was young, my family and relative spent a lot of time out at the lakes. We camped and the smell of fresh fried fish was so wonderful and it tasted so good! Ginny, you and Cecil have a wonderful Easter! blessings,Kathleen

I'm with you! The flowers look so pretty, but the allergies are bad. That fish looks tasty.

I am so happy that you and Cecil are enjoying the beautiful North Carolina spring. Having lived in Greensboro for 10 years I remember the vibrant colors of spring with the lilacs, azaleas and rhododendrons.

Also, Ginny you and your blogging friends have inspired me, I have started my own blog please stop by

Blessings for a wonderful Spring
