Spring has sprung here in the Peach State

And I have the evidence to prove it!

I know it is not three weeks since my last post but I just had to share the photos with you.

We arrived in Georgia and I couldn't believe my eyes. In Florida there was really no evidence of spring however I guess because Georgia is known as the Peach State and has lots of peach trees there are just the most beautiful trees loaded with blossoms everywhere. The powers that be have even planted them along the interstate at many of the exits, at rest areas and visitors centres. It is an absolute picture.

To further enhance the feel of spring there are wisterias (or as my dear dad used to call them - Histerias - because thats how he felt when he had to clean up all the blossom that fell) growing wild along the interstate and the dogwoods are blooming every where. I only found out they are dogwoods today - pretty flowers.

Enjoy the photos and look out for the next blog with details of our visit to Stone Mountain State Park.

Take care all and catch you soon. Stay healthy and happy.


  1. Thanks for the photos. I especially like the signs. They tell a lot.

  2. What a beautiful sight! Spring in the south and later in the mid west is like your soul coming alive again. So refreshing. I will miss Missouri in the spring. Thanks for posting these pics.


  3. Judee I just loved the signs. We have come across some really good ones throughout our travels. A pity I didn't start taking them sooner, I could have edited a book with them all in.

  4. Karen I had really forgotten how lovely spring can be as we missed last years in Aust. so it is 18 months since we saw blossoms and azaleas and all those really pretty plants. Really enjoying it all.
