~SPRING IN IOWA~

Just a few of our 23 TALL PINE TREES going up the lane to our house. They are at least 50 years old and are as tall as a 10 story building. Fresh green pine sprigs and pine cones that smell like HEAVEN at Christmas Time are why I love these trees!!!
Mr. Face Looks at us when we look out our 9 foot long front picture window. The field across the highway will be planted with IOWA CORN very soon!!!!


Notice the pine cones hanging off Mr. Face Tree??? The girls took some pine cones that had fallen off the pine trees and coated them with PEANUT BUTTER for our feather friends in the winter.


In the back yard which faces the south, we have more pine trees and it was so fun to see little tuffs of green grass coming thru the ground. Love those PINE CONES TOO!!!


This is what we see out of our back door.....this too will be filled with IOWA CORN this summer that grows TALLER than 6 foot and I will be sure to take pictures for all of you to see.



IT'S HERE...IT'S HERE....SPRING IS FINALLY IN IOWA and today we broke a weather record with 79 degree weather. Lots of sun and warm wind and so I thought I would take a picture of what I saw today......Our Backyard...Out our Front Picture Window and those AWESOME TALL Pine Trees that line the lane up to our house. We have 23 pine trees on our property alone.....that doesn't include any of the other trees we have.....I LOVE THE COUNTRY in the SPRING AND SUMMER!!!! And soon they will be planting the corn. I hope to be able to take some night time pictures of the farmers in their big tractors. It's so neat to see them working in the dark planting the corn.
HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE.....Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

What a beautiful view. The pine trees are awesome. And like you I love the country and spring and summer and fall! Winter, that's another story. Sorry your girls no longer want frilly, vintage. I have a teenage son who decorates with rock star posters. Just shut the door and walk on! LOL

Happy spring to you, too! I can almost smell the pine! I am looking forward to seeing lots of green too but it will be a little while yet, we still have some snow!

Tell those farmers in Iowa to plant extra corn! We need to focus more on our alternative energies ETHENOL All the way baby! More money for those farmers! Less we have to rely on foreign oil...win win win situation if you ask me;) personally corn fields scare me, I never enter in, for fear I will get lost, some of them can be so darn massive! Children of the corn (freaky movie) comes to my mind too:( but lovely lovely view you've got! ahhhh* Peace and tranquility!
