It Must be Spring 1 (photos)

Real Estate Agent with

It must be Spring in Big Canoe as well as in our North Georgia Mountains. The leaves are out on the trees and there are great signs of life every where.

Mountain Laurel flowers

The above and below photo are of Mountain Laurel.

Mountain Laurel flowers

Mountain Laurel is really pretty. This year it bloomed a bit early. The flowers are delicate and long lasting. The beauty of this woody plant is that is grows here wild. The leaves are evergreen so you have green year round!. It requires no care or feeding. You just sit back and enjoy the beauty. Yesterday I sat on our front porch and enjoyed our woods and this pretty gift from nature. The North Georgia Mountains whether you are in Big Canoe or not are where we at All Mountain Realty work. Looking at the photos you can see why.

Charlie - I've heard of Mountain Laurel, but had never seen photos until now - THANKS for sharing!  It is beautiful, and low-maintenance to boot!

Hi Charlie, I have never seen Mountain Laurel in bloom and I missed a lot. These photos are just beautiful.

Hi Charlie...

Looks like we'll have some cooler weather in a few days, which will be a relief from the early heat. But we did see some great flowers this Spring.

Pretty...I wish I were sitting your porch with you appreciating the beauty of nature!  I could use some peace and quiet right about now.  I feel like I'm about to burn out!

Charlie: Great photos.  These native plants are beautiful in bloom but just as interesting when not in bloom with their twists and turns.  I tell my real estate cllients all the time to spare this beautiful foliage when they talk about doing some clearing.
