    Don’t you just love this time of year? All of the pear trees, redbuds, and forsythia are in full bloom against the backdrop of a Kentucky blue sky with white billowing clouds.. Warm sunshine on your face and a nice spring breeze. Lower heating bills, sleeping with the windows open and birds chirping. I mean how can you not love everything about the spring!
