The beauty of the trees with their buds and then colorful blooms always delight me in the spring. I loved watching the transformation of this gorgeous tree on our property in Niobrara last week while. We were there while I was recovering from a minor surgery. It was the perfect place for me to recover as it didn't hold the endless list of to-do tasks, meetings, and errands that Council Bluffs holds. Instead days were spent reading a book in the sun, napping, watching countless hours of Duck Dynasty (I am hooked!), cooking, and just letting my body heal. So thankful we have this place.
