Spring in Hendersonville, TN

George and I were shocked (and pleased) to see that Spring has arrived in Hendersonville, TN (where George's parents live). We have very little color so far up here on the Cumberland Plateau----but driving down off of the mountain about 2.5 hours west of home, we found Spring color yesterday!!!!!! I was so excited ---and I know this color will get to our area soon. Here are some pictures of Spring in Hendersonville, TN (which is north of Nashville). Above is one of the many Bradford Pear trees --found in almost every yard in Tennessee!!!! Below are more!

Dad Adams has always grown beautiful flowers. This is the row of Daffodils along the driveway... There are more on the other side of the driveway and also in several places in their large backyard (which Dad calls the "Back Forty")... SO pretty!!!!

The white blooms on the Bradford Pears look like SNOW.

Besides the white Bradford Pears, there was alot of YELLOWS all around the neighborhood. The Forsythias were in full bloom.

Besides Dad's white Daffodils, he also has lots of yellow ones.

Here's one more picture of the beautiful blue sky and a Bradford Pear. Can you tell that Spring has Sprung in Hendersonville, TN???????

We found George's parents in fairly good condition --although Dad (who is going to be 98 in August) has to do almost everything these days due to Mom's forgetfulness. He has never had to cook before---but has learned. However, we can tell that this is all too much for him. Please pray for them! They need to accept more help ---yet they are BOTH very very independent and stubborn.
