Springtime blooms in SW Georgia/SE Alabama

 Forsythia, one of the first signs of spring everywhere.
Hyacinth

Red Bud Trees just bursting into bloom.
My "Best Trees for Georgia" book says Bradford pear is a poor choice because the branches are fragile and break too easily.  However, if you have ever seen a row of them blooming in the Spring or bright red in the fall, you plant them anyway!
Camelias are nearly done blooming, but we love them because they keep our spirits up in the cold weather as they start blooming in late December or early January.
Daffodils- so sunny and bright letting us know spring is here!
