But, these photos are especially for my anonymous naysayer who thinks that I am a Utah snob.
I remind you all that I am 2/3 California, 1/6 Utah, and 1/6 Tennessee.
But, I can't wait to be mostly Tennessee...I love it here.
Now, August in TN, with all it's humid glory, that's a different story.
Stay tuned for the dogwoods...they aren't out yet. And, FYI, if you plan move to Tennessee, you better learn the name of lots plants and trees, or YOU will be the ignorant one. Everyone here knows so much more about nature than I do.
But, that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy it or appreciate it! Because I do SOOOO much!
Here's my version of Spring mixed with one of my favorite hymns.
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love, which from our birth,
Over and around us lies,
Hill and vale, and tree and flow'r,
Sun and moon, and stars of light,
For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above
