Good Friday?

One Red Tee, standing water             

Certainly not weather-wise.  Rain continues to plague the region.  Everyone I talk to has a comment about our weather pattern, you cant go get a cup of coffee without the conversation quickly turning to the weather. 

We did get a brief, but lovely look at the sun yesterday.  I must admit, I never understood peoples fascination with sunshine, but this stretch has made me long for the day when I can look up, close my eyes, and feel the warmth of the sun on my face.  The rain and cold has kept most of the turf from growing too much, everything is slow right now, we have accomplished some work because of the weather. 

We have taken out many small trees that have grown in our natural areas and around ponds.  We received a new machine last year which will allow us to cut these areas in the fall which should control future woody growth, and we are excited.

Speaking of natural areas, we will be doing some more experimental plots this year and we would like some help in evaluating these and other areas.  If you are interested in joining the Briar Ridge Environmental Program Committee, please contact me. 

I hope, and I hope you have hope,
