If you are a regular visitor to Southern Lagniappe, you're probably tired of seeing posts featuring Spring flowers and trees. I apologize for being redundant, but I can't resist capturing our long-awaited Spring in all its glory.

The next few days are supposed to be rainy ones here in Vicksburg, but I hope to get out and take some pictures of some of the beautiful old antebellum homes while their Azaleas and Dogwoods are blooming.
Our "Spring Pilgrimage" begins this Friday, and I'll share more about it later.
