March 20th marks the first day of Spring even though record highs are suggesting that it’s already here. Once clocks are set forward one hour on March 13th, daylight will stick around longer in the evenings giving us all the sense of longer days and all the fun outdoor activities that come along with it. But, we all know too well that the snow isn’t done with us yet…not even close.
Statistically speaking, March is the snowiest month of the year followed by the month of April (according to weather.org). And, don’t forget the usual snow fall in May. Seeing some early blooming flowers sprouting up through the ground might have you digging for t-shirts and pastel colored blouses but don’t put your sweaters and snow boots away just yet.
What you might want to consider, however, is taking care of your landscaping these next couple months. It can be easy to overlook watering trees and shrubs this time of year but doing so a couple times a month can be very beneficial especially if the weather keeps up the way it has been. Just make sure to water early in the day so roots can soak it all up before temperatures fall at night.
Regardless of the imminent snow, Arrowhead Golf Club is welcoming Spring and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a golf tournament. The St. Patty’s Day Scramble will be held March 18, 19 and 20. The four-person scramble costs $89 per person which includes an Irish themed pre and post meal, green and cart fees, GPS, range balls and potential raffle prizes. To sign up, please call 303.973.9614 or visit their website.
