New Life

Easter BirdEaster is the perfect time to be thinking about new life. Up here on the North Coast of the USA things are just starting to come to life. Today it was easy to see the first flower in one of my flower beds. I have two flower beds that butt up against the house and I suspect that they stay just warm enough that little volunteers like this one get a real head start of the others that have to deal with a deep frost like my out in the open garden does.1st flower of 2019

Every day for the past two weeks I have been closely inspecting my boulevard trees to see if they were showing any kind of life. There had been nothing until this afternoon. Yesterday we had our first 70 degree day (just jumped right over having a 60 degree day) and in the evening we had a gentile shower. Evidently that is exactly what one of the two trees were waiting for.

1st Tree bud 2019The other boulevard tree still appears dorment and the other trees are so large I can't see up there to see if they triggered yet or not.

One thing I have noticed on Active Rain this week in both the blogs and questions is that several agents are asking how to add new life to their  marketing. Maybe the answer is to let the old marketing habits that once were fruitful and now seem unproductive die. Perhaps those methods had their season and perhaps they will come around to be fruitful in another season but let them go for now and look for a way to introduce or even recognize new life in your market.

Active Rain is a fertile garden of ideas that can help you grow your market. Seek the advice of master gardeners like Kathy Streib , Barbara Todaro , Grant Schneider and hundreds of others here in the Rain. Don't be to quick to dismiss ideas that seem foreign to you. Learn to adapt to your environment and you will have a bountiful harvest this fall.

You are the BEST at what you do Barbara Todaro and any agent that dismisses your advice would be a fool.

So much of the country endured an elongated winter.  I suspect I'm not the only one that looked forward to Easter and the ushering in of spring.  New life - indeed!

Thank you Bob Crane . It's 7:15 AM Easter morning and we are about to head to Easter breakfast at our church and then catch the 2nd worship service at 8:15.

Endre Barath, Jr. once in a while I can pull it together and make some sence.

Good morning Bob. Sometimes youneed to plant a new garden and sometimes you just need to turn the soil in the old one so things can bloom again. Enjoy your day!

You are right Wayne Martin , a little maintenance and/or tweeking can go a long ways.

Thank you Ron and Alexandra Seigel , I hope you are having a good Easter as well. This is the 1st one without Tina as she did not get any days off at school. It was kind of sad because it was also the 1st time we did not have an Easter egg hunt either.

You are truly one of the top educaters here Grant Schneider and I appreciate that more than you will ever know.
