Spring is in the air

Still nearly a month away, spring is in the air in Vicksburg with warm sunshine and blooming flowers and trees. Above, a Japanese magnolia tree stands with its blooms wide open on Wisteria Drive and yellow daffodils are in full bloom in Jo Ann Franco’s front lawn on Eisenhower Drive. Below, “Ninaboo” cleans herself in a bird bath while enjoying Wednesday afternoon’s warm sunshine in the Wisteria Drive flower garden of her owners, Charlie and Nichole Inman.
