My 2nd favorite season is Springtime (Fall is my ultimate favorite in NC). Each spring we plant a small garden with tomatoes, basil, squash, and sometimes melon. When I retire, I will have a large garden, but for now, I will keep it easy for me to do on the weekends. I am looking forward to longer days where I can get a lot done and end my day on the porch enjoying the sunset.

Staying home is great, but a weekend getaway or a day trip to a winery has always been a favorite escape with my girlfriends. Over the late fall and winter, the Retirement Resource Guide’s wine lover extraordinaire, Mary Ann Guinn, visited a dozen wineries in and around the Yadkin Valley and, while she loves them all in their own special ways, there are four that make her “Top Picks”. Make sure to read the cover story to find out which they are!
