SPRING HAS ARRIVED. These photographs were taken during mid-April at the home of Lawrence and Barbara Comardelle in McNeil, Miss.
In honor of my grandfather’s 68th birthday, my family and I traveled to McNeil, Miss. for a fun-filled day complete with aunts, uncles, cousins and a steaming pot of my dad’s boiled crawfish.

It was great to catch up with relatives that I don’t get the chance to visit with often, but there’s something about my grandparents 10-acre country home that intrigues me.

Assisted with my digital camera and when no one was paying attention, I took it upon myself to take a long-overdue tour of the property.

I was a teenager when they first purchased the land and I can still remember driving up to Mississippi with them on the weekends to help clear trees and work on the building of their house.

Back then, we’d call it a night by sleeping in a temporary shed that my grandfather built.

Yet times have changed and the hill that there house sits on is now sheer perfection. A place where I’d want to grow old.

Anyway, with camera in hand, I examined the trees, the creek, the flowers, the garden and all that surrounded me as if I’d never seen it before.

The heads of cabbage and blooming green onion proved to me that winter is now an after thought and spring is here to stay.

The collage to the left is comprised of photos that were taken on my relaxing journey.

Take a look, enjoy and let the pictures take you to a place of serenity and peace.
