Greetings Blog Gang,
In response to the comment earlier today by Anonymous I went back and looked at our archives. I didn't remember writing the same blog last year but didn't doubt that I might have since Spring is such an exciting time in the South East. But I was surprised that the commenter mentioned that it was on the exact same day.
What I discovered was that somehow when I was working on the blog Monday I managed to schedule the blog with the correct date for the month and day but I had done the year for last year, 2011.
I am such a Luddite and have so much trouble with the computer that when I couldn't find the post I had written when I went back to fine tune it and add a few thoughts I just assumed that I had deleted it or not saved it correctly and that blogger ate it, especially since Blogger really does hate me, so I re-wrote the blog.
I am sorry for any trouble or inconvenience or confusion my error has caused.
