OH, TO TURN 21 AGAIN

Rowena's 21st birthday bash
was a hit at Plush in St. Louis
with a fancy birthday cake,
and the amazing musical energy
of Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy
from Wichita, Kansas.

Wow!

REDBUDS ARE IN BLOOM

There's no mistaking the pink
in the woods this time of year.

Before most trees have a chance
to show their leaves,
the Eastern Red Bud tree is sprouting
brilliant pinks on its branches,
and along its trunk.

This has long been a sacred tree
for Native Americans.

(Good choice.)

FIELDS OF PURPLE

Missouri farm fields are covered
with vast fields of brilliant purple,
a sign that this year's alfalfa crop
will be bountiful.

Alfalfa is an important and nutritious
forage crop for livestock,
and is breathtaking to behold
in mid-April.

EASTER GREETINGS

Here's hoping the Easter Bunny
brought you sweet surprises
this Easter Sunday morning.

He's been visiting lots of boys & girls,
hiding colored eggs, and
giving sweet chocolates and prizes,
and carrots, too!

Carrots???
What are we supposed to do
  with carrots?

(Hmmm, they're yummy too.)
