“Iowa Lodging at Quiet Walker Lodge Bed and Breakfast, a Country Inn and Dubuque area bed and breakfast located near Dubuque, Iowa” />I enjoyed my 60th birthday this past Wednesday by going to Madison, Wisconsin. I ate at a fabulous place called Muramoto. The shushi was some of the best I have ever had and the plum wine was excellent. Prices were reasonable for lunch and I would highly recommend this place if you are ever in the mood for some good sushi.
Besides lunch, I toured the Olbrich botantical gardens and saw three plants that I am hoping to get for my garden. The Persian Pearl Tulip and Checkered Fritillary were two of my favorite ones. For a shaded area, the Lenten roses were great bushes for accent color. I am sure the gardens change with the seasons and I am looking forward to going back in July to see the summer colors.

So today I got creative and made a basket using all natural stuff. It is 82 here in Iowa and the trees and plants just do not know what to do. The normal is about 46! Amazing….
Sometimes God blesses us with the most awesome sign of his presence. This morning I woke up to this beautiful landscape outside my front windows. As much as I complain about plowing, shoveling, driving and freezing in this winter, I am reminded of just how beautiful it can be.
