Sunday in Iowa...


This chainsaw carving of the Morel mushroom man is behind the Bonaparte Retreat restaurant in Bonaparte, Iowa. That's the Des Moines river behind it.
Morel mushroom hunting is an annual Spring rite in Iowa...no one will share their "favorite" hunting ground...but finding the earliest Morel or the largest Morel are grounds for a lot of boasting.  Our morels were early this year in a unusually warm March
Bonaparte has been named the smallest Main Street Community in the United States and is one of just 5 winners in the entire U.S. of the "Great American Main Street Award" 
according to IowaBeautiful.com.
