Warmest March, Stillwater Sunday

It's shaping up to be the warmest March on record.  Here's the proof:  March 25th and my Mock Orange bushes are full of leaves already.

They don't usually flower until May, but I'm betting they will be in bloom over a month early this year.

The buds on my maple tree are "fluffing" out too. 

On this summery Sunday, C and I drove to Stillwater, passing this short wind generator in North St Paul.

We walked up the main street in downtown Stillwater to browse one of the larger antique shops, then saw this car on the way back...

...with the Bob's Big Boy figure in the rear window, bringing back memories of a favorite diner from childhood vacations.

We wet our whistles with rum drinks at Smalley's Caribbean Barbeque and made a light supper out of some delicious appetizers before heading for home.

Pirates, anyone?
