Picture taken 4-22-10 with my canon S51S. This is a rural Iowa picture taken in Polk County in The City of Des Moines Iowa in the country area. We have a lot of crab apple blooms around town last month in April and the smell and fragrance is so awesome and refreshing. They now are staring to disappear and the Lilacs are taking over. There is no greater smell then the Lilacs as far as I am concerned. The city of Des Moines is very privileged to have a Crab apple Arboretum in our beautiful Water Works park. We also have a Lilac Arboretum in our local Ewing Park. Spring is truly a beautiful time of year. This picture is UNEDITED and is AS IS !
