It's Probably Spring by Now, in Knoxville

These pictures are from my archives, and were taken mid-March of 2006 in Knoxville. I worked in an office there that was across the road from a very large cemetery. The cemetery had beautiful landscaping and many people liked to walk through it on their lunch hour.

Knoxville may have long, dreary, rainy winters, but springtime comes early and absolutely knock your socks off :)

I admit it, I was playing with the "soft focus" function in the above picture.

Most of the spring bulbs are up around here now. Daffodils and hyacinths and crocuses. I love the return of blooms as winter blends into spring and finally passes on.
