Signs Of Spring


The signs of spring are really beginning to pop up across the metro area thanks to the 70+ degree weather we have been enjoying this weekend. The picture above is one that I took as I walked into the TV station today. With the Japanese Magnolias in bloom we know the cherry trees and dogwoods can not be too far behind.

I noticed more signs on spring in Gwinnett County the other day when I was on my way to a school. There were daffodils all along the interstate at several exits. So, how did we get daffodils along the interstate? Well, the DOT has expanded it wildflower program to include daffodils. To find out where the daffodils were planted or to learn more about the wildflower program click here.

Of course now that things are beginning to bloom that means the allergy season is here. I even noticed a very slight film of yellow on my car the other day! If you suffer from allergies and want to keep up with the latest pollen count you can get it by watching CBS46 or by going to the Atlanta Allergy & Asthma Clinic homepage.

Have a great week and enjoy all that spring has to offer!
