I am always in love when the spring flowers bloom. They are so beautiful, after the long dark winter. I don't believe the roses could have one more bloom, there are so many. The colors are so beautiful.We went down to the river, which is still in it's banks. WE have had floods for the past few springs.
My yard is staring to shape up, the floods have done a number and killed a lot of stuff. Since I bought the old place, I have learned what will make it through the floods and what won't. It is hurtful to watch all your work, die when the old Mississippi over flows it's banks. To those of you that do not know, My old house is about 200 feet from the Mississippi. Last year the river was about 6 inches deep all the way around my house. In 168 years it has never been inside. That's good. I pray it doesn't in the future.
Who knows what the summer will bring. I hope we continue to get some nice slow rains. So far it has been a beautiful spring. Please come sometime and take a tour. I will always leave a light on, Buddy will meet ya at the door. Come on over, we'll all take a walk.
