These Rose of Sharon blooms are from three trees given to me by my friend Sue. They are sprouted from her trees, one white, one pink, one purple. They are a variety of Hibiscus that is not tropical.
Spring weather means people, cooped up all winter, are ready to be outside and enjoy the spring weather. The pedestrian bridge is seeing lots more traffic now that it is warmer.
Taking a short break so reposting from the beginning blog days.
When the Bearded Iris bloom spring is in full swing. I wish they lasted more than a few very short weeks. I’d like to see them bloom all summer but then they may not be quite so special.
Dogwoods and especially pink dogwoods mean spring has arrived. But I could do without the cold snap of Dogwood Winter they bring with them.
A revisit with a very early post.
For Nashville, spring means out of town visitors. Downtown is glad to see the weather bring in lots of visitors after the long cold winter. People come on foot, by carriage, on bicycle and by car to the Strip on Lower Broadway and is Nashville ever happy to see them. Locals also come out in the beautiful weather to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Strip. Spring brings life back to the Strip.
The artist in residence program at Huntsman is funded by the LiveStrong Foundation and the Creative Center. Both organizations focus on funding for arts in healthcare and have funded a number of excellent programs. Here is one artist’s story as he works with cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.
Nothing says Spring like the sight of Cherry Blossoms and this little bee knows it. He was making a beeline for the blooms. Maybe he’s hungry after a long cold winter!
