Daylight savings; is the smell of spring in the air?

Posted on March 5, 2014 at 12:00 AM by Sophia Johnson


Daylight savings is this Sunday, March 9th and after you "spring" forward by moving your clocks one hour ahead, before you know it, spring will be just around the corner. We've had a great winter, the kind that gives Mother Nature's talk drink of water to the lawns for those who have had dehydrated and thirsty lawns in the past years. 
To top things off after our last melt, the Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District is now offering tree, shrub, and wildflower seeds for spring planting. Visit their website at http://nassauswcd.org/ to fill out an application and to view pictures of your choices.
