Spring in Georgia and in Tennessee

Hyacinth in our yard
We finally bit the bullet and bought a new iPhone 5s.  It will take me a long time to get it learned --but so far,  I am THRILLED.  My first photos taken on March 23, 2014 using the iPhone camera were of some of the Spring Flowers in our yard.   I will share these little spring flowers with you today.

Crocus blooms in our yard

Bradford Pear in Georgia
On our way home from Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia on March 26,  we noticed lots and lots of Bradford Pears blooming in Georgia... We also saw Forsythia in bloom,  other fruit trees,   Daffodils and even some Phlox. Spring has sprung down there... We are quite a bit behind Georgia with our spring blooms here on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee.

Lodge at Amicalola Falls State Park,  Georgia
While in Georgia, we loved staying at the Amicalola Lodge on top of the mountain.  The view from our room was awesome...  Here is a photo of the lodge entrance area.

I posted this photo in another blog post--but wanted to show you again a close-up photo of the lodge using the long lens, from a distance.

Here's another photo of the lodge from a distance (NOT using the long lens).

Beautiful CLOUDS
We had interesting weather while we were there (sunshine, clouds, snow).  AND--since we had such a great view from our room at the lodge,  we both took several photos from our room... SO---I'll show you some of them now.

Can you believe that we saw all of this beauty from the big window in our room at the lodge?????  Neat,  don't you think?
