The scent of lilacs waft through the backyard with a warm gentle spring breeze.  The branches of the lilac tree dance in the breeze. The scent so strong it is almost intoxicating when taking a deep breath.   Can you smell the lilacs?


One Last Hurrah

Old Man Winter decided to have one last hurrah in Southeast Iowa today.  Although the calendar says it is spring, he isn’t ready for vacation just yet.
