|Snowy Egret on Avery Island|

Spring is Here!
As I was leaving home yesterday, I noticed the azaleas were in full bloom, which isn't surpising at this time of the year. But what is surprising is that the blossoms are still attached to the bushes. Usually, after the blooming a huge rainstrorm comes through and rips the blossoms from their hips before we can fully admire their beauty.
We drove to Lafayette to visit our son, who is away at college and hasn't been able to come home for several weeks. On our way home, we decided to visit Avery Island, the place where Tabasco is made. I noticed the snowy egrets were in abundance on Bird Island, roosting. Spring is definitely here.
