With the onset of spring bloom, there is activity in the air!  Creeks are up, canoes are headed to the Mulberry and Piney, motorists are cruising into the Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains.  Hikers are headed into the woods.  Photographers, professional and amateur, have tripods in hand to visit the multitude of waterfalls and the dogwoods just now in bloom.  Friends and neighbors are starting to put out their bedding plants and gardens.  It's an exciting time!   This may be the most optimistic time of the year for viticulturists--well, as soon as the last chance of frost passes.  How's that for guarded optimism?!  We hope you get into your nearby woods and parks to take advantage of what nature has to offer!
