Spring

 The Cherry Trees are in bloom and so are some of the Dogwood Trees. 

Prince and I took two trips down the Natchez Trace this past weekend. First one was to see if the Tunnel of Purple were blooming and the second one was to drive Mimi down the Trace so she could see the beautiful colors. 

Spring has arrived in Tennessee and if you have never enjoyed the colorful and fragrance of Middle Tennessee Spring well all I can say is "Bless your Hearts."
The cups are almost gone and the Easter Bushes have shed their yellow blooms to make the ground underneath a bright yellow. But the lilac is blooming along with Money plants and grown cover, Arch Angel, Vin ca,,some fuzzy stuff with yellow tops that Mimi brought back from one of her best friends house at Mount Eagle Mountain. The grass is so green you feel like you are visiting the Emerald Isle while the smaller trees have gotten their leaves, the tall ones, oaks, hickories, walnuts, beech are still covered in green lace. The snowball bush is covered with green balls waiting to turn white and when you venture outside you find another luscious view to make your heart sing. 

The Kitty Justice is that I am truly thankful to be a native middle Tennessean and each year the Spring becomes more spectacular.

I agree. I never get tired of going down the Natchez Trace this time of year. The Red bud trees are always a glorious site. Peace

It's autumn down this way...but it's still quite warm. Rain predicted for tomorrow...after that it might cool down a bit. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather.

Since you are on the other side of the world it figures Fall has started his visit. Enjoy the cool weather. Peace
