Spring is Coming soon
The birds are singing, and the daffodils have sprung 3 inches out of the soil in the gardens. The sun is warm and the days noticeably longer...can spring be far away?
Sure hope it will be here soon. Louisville is ready for a beautiful spring ...we deserve it after the ice storm we had in January.
We can't wait to visit the garden centers to buy annuals. Everyone in Louisville just has to have everything planted in time for the Kentucky Derby. That means all is planted and ready to go by the first Saturday in May. This year it falls on May 2nd., but the festivities start two weeks before with Thunder Over Louisville. It's the biggest fireworks display in the United States and draws over 500,000 people to watch the air show and fireworks at the rivers edge.
