April Showers bring May….Bugs

April Showers Well, March is over and it was pretty ho hum as far as the weather went.  We had our cold days and (record) warm days.  The bugs woke up from their winter slumber, especially the ants, and the April showers and (hopefully) a little warmer weather are sure to bring everything else out […]
