Signs--Faded and standing

An old STANDARD gas station sign still stands in
Coggin, Iowa.

Old two-story house next to an old abandoned brick business
in Waterloo, IA.

Closer look at the back of the brick building shows a
faded advertisement for Coca-Cola. "Delicious and Refreshing"
and look at the price.....5 cents.

Spring has Sprung-part 2

Must be Springtime in Cedar Rapids when....
Trees are in bloom like this one on 20th Ave SW.

Even the Czech's Museum clock is hiding behind the
Bradford trees.

Some color blooming behind the Kosek Bandstand in
Czech Village.

A cross on display in Czech Village and dedicated to the
Memory of the Kuncl's.

Even some more Daffodils in our yard has bloomed.

Our Hostas are coming up.

The pink flower bushes are peeking thru.

Some more Hostas coming up in front of the Daffodils.
