The Crew had the privelage this past weekend of watching one of our own tie the knot. Carley, our Club Horticulturist/ Arborist was married on March 6th to Marshall Cresap. It's not everyday that our crew dresses up in shirts and ties, let alone wedding dresses, so I couldn't resist the photo op! Our congratulations to Carley and Marshall and here's to a long life together!

I seem to be spending a lot of time lately listening to my kids talking about how March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but today seems more "lambish" than "lionish". Either way, the passing of February into March does something to me. It means the beginning of the NCAA Tournament ("March Madness" if you will), the gradual melting of snow cover, and the subsequent influx of last year's laborers checking in to find out when we will need them back. Today seems to encompass all three of the aforementioned milestones: we spent lunch determining that my assistant Mick will be handling the annual NCAA pool this year, one of my seasonal guys showed up at the shop to tell me how "ready" he was to get back to work, and I got a chance to drive the course and actually look at turf for a change. What I found was predictable based on the winter we've had this year.
