    Where did the summer go? The weather was so beautiful and warm there for a few days, bringing the spring flowers into full blossom. It is the first time I can recall ever seeing the redbuds bloom out in March. I had been seeing bushes in full bloom in yards, and remarked they looked like redbuds, but thought I must be mistaken. But my son, James Barnes, and I went to Bowling Green Saturday afternoon and saw redbuds in full bloom all along the sides of I-65.
