Spring fever is hitting!

This morning I had a meeting in Sheridan so it was an early drive down. The wisteria is running rampant in the woods all along the highways and interstates everywhere I drive.
While folks remark on how pretty it is, it is also pretty devastating to the trees it is growing on. Wisteria forms a woody vine which can girdle and kill a tree if it is allowed to grow unchecked.
There is no one to maintain it in the wild and it is spreading like wildfire. Wherever it touches ground it roots, and it can choke out other plants; pretty but deadly!
After my meeting I drove back to Little Rock. This afternoon we had to do a bit of kitchen work, picking out flooring. I am getting close to nailing down all our choices and it is beginning to seem real. After I get home tomorrow afternoon from my hosta society talk in Hot Springs I plan to begin to really empty out the kitchen except for essentials.
