On the other hand....
Summerville, South Carolina, is called "Flowertown in the Pines".
Flowers. As in, REAL FLOWERS.
This picture was taken in Summerville (about 25 miles, or 41 km from Charleston, South Carolina) during last year's Flowertown Festival. This festival normally takes place at the end of March or beginning of April in their Azalea Park.
Appropriately, this variety is called the Pride of Summerville.
There is a lot more to this park than azaleas. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.
Spring takes a long time to come where I live. But I have my memories of South Carolina warmth and beauty to sustain me until then. One day, the breezes will turn warm and we will be complaining that it is too hot.
But the heat will bring the flowers, and I will be happy.
Do you have a favorite flower?
Tomorrow - a garden people come from over the world to see. And it is in someone's yard.
