It’s official spring is here

Vicksburg and Warren County don’t have to have a calendar to know it’s spring. On Tuesday, the first official day of the season of growth and blooming even though a low of a sometimes-chilly 54 degrees was recorded animals, flowers and children were notably out and about. Above left, a mockingbird sits on the vine of a blooming wisteria bush on Porters Chapel Road near South Frontage Road, and, at left, sisters Ramona, right, and Rebecca Edwards play football off Oak Street. The two are the daughters of Raymond and Sherri Edwards of Vicksburg. Temperatures Wednesday and throughout the week were forecast to steadily increase to a high in the low 70s on Friday before cooling off again with predicted weekend rain.
