It felt like spring finally arrived this week with a few beautiful back-to-back warm days in the Berkshires. Combine that with the Red Sox winning 4 straight games, more sun and warm weather in the forecast, flowers blooming and buds on the trees getting ready to turn the Berkshires green.  It seems like the cold and darkness of winter is finally well behind us.

The National Weather Service is predicting the perfect weather this weekend to balance nature’s need for sun and rain. Saturday will be beautiful in the Berkshires with sunny skies and temps near 70 degrees. A perfect day to lay down some grass seed, fertilize, or start some early planting. Mother Nature will help out on Sunday with some natural watering with rain expected to start in the morning. Showers are in the forecast to start the beginning of the week.
