It certainly is not unusual to see green this time of year. In fact, we have been seeing green for most of February.  It started with the tender buds sprouting on so many of the trees at Bernheim to the daffodils coming up behind Isaac's Café.  Even with the colder weather this week, the plants seem to be holding their ground, braving the chill and … [Read more]
