Spring Returns to North Texas

It’s that time of year again. It always seems to catch me by surprise. As I drove into Ridgeview Ranch last night, I noted the Bradford Pear trees are just beginning to bloom. For me, that’s the first sign that colder winter weather is about to give way to spring.

It’s also time to get out and do that first work on your lawn. With warmer temperatures come the weeds so it’s time to get your pre and post emergent down. You can purchase these at your local home supply store or you can have it handled professionally. Click here for our directory of lawncare professionals.

Spring Comes to North Texas

I love this time of year in North Texas. The temperatures are mild—crisp in the mornings and warm in the afternoons. As March begins so does Spring. I was reminded this morning when I was outside drinking my coffee and watching the dogs run around the yard looking for bunnies to chase.

As I sipped my coffee, I noted the Bradford Pear trees were just getting ready to bloom.  As I took a closer look, I noted a few early blooms glistening in the early morning sun. It was a peaceful moment taking it all in…the smell of the coffee, the sun kissing the blooms, the birds singing.

Spring Comes to North Texas

While I knew that moment would give way to the hustle and bustle of another busy day, I had to sit there and savor the moment. I learned this lesson the hard way as I watched my spouse battle cancer. She survived and both of us look at life differently.

Time is a finite resource. Take a few moments out of your day to look at the beauty around you.
