Have you seen the weather lately? How could you miss it? The sun is out and what a difference a little shine makes. It is definitely time to get outside in Lane County.

Hopefully, you had a chance to go to the Home Show last weekend and get prepped for all the summer remodeling and garden work — we are seeing many of you come in and pick up ceramic pots, gardening tools and bicycles, too!
