It is time to get outdoors and enjoy the early spring days before the summer heat is upon us.
It is hard to believe that soon the complaint will be it is too hot. Sadly, in Las Vegas there are more days in the year that we say it is too hot than there are days when it is too cold. So, that being said, enjoy the short early spring while you can.
Get outdoors walk around and do some gardening, weeding or just enjoying the day with other garden friends.
