Looking Back Part I

3 May, 2011 1 comment

All it has been doing here in Kentucky is raining. While the sun continues to come out and play every other day or so, it has mainly stayed away. We also are having some cooler than normal temps so the plants are growing, but a bit slower than normal. That is okay though. I found on my digital camera pictures from September to November of last year I forgot about. I just started using my cameras phone instead. So, we will be taking a look back at last year’s peak growth of the tropicals over the next few post’s.
