Spring has Arrived! What's New on YouTube? Local Events this Week!
Spring has arrived and the temperatures along the coast are steadily rising. It is a far cry from the freezing nights we experienced last week. Gardens are beginning to "show off" blooms and local garden centers are loaded with beautiful things to add to your own yard. If you missed the sale at Mobile Botanical Garden, there are still plants available at their Marketplace on Fridays & Saturdays!
A Bloom Garden Center is "busting at the seams" with unique bloomers and vegetables ready to join your landscape! I urge you to shop local centers for two reasons. First of all the knowledge that you'll gain from these professionals is priceless. Secondly, the selection is exceptional, unlike the big box stores who seem to carry duplicates of one another.
This is the season that reminds all of us why we love living along the coast. The luscious landscape, including our beaches, makes this a haven for those of us who enjoy nature. Enjoy this gorgeous Friday and spend some time outside today!

In the Book Corner...Netflix???
Full disclosure, I did not crack a book this week! I know that is shocking to those of you who know me well. Unfortunately, I have been recovering from a sinus infection/sore throat/earache for the past 5 days and reading just wasn't something I desired. However, I could watch television and turned to Netflix for entertainment and perhaps education.
The Law According to Lidia Poet
This series was the perfect one to watch during Women's History Month. It is based on the true story of Lidia Poet, the first female attorney in Italy. The story is set in the late 19th century in Turin, Italy. Despite having earned the certification to practice law, she was disbarred after practicing for three months. The series follows her advocacy for women's rights and her penchant for the law. According to a surviving relative, the series takes a great deal of creative license. In fact, this individual thought it was ridiculous for writers needing to embellish the very intriguing real life of Lidia Poet. That being said, the series caused me to look deeper into the life of this heroic lady. I highly recommend it!
