New Blooms in Georgia

We were gone only a week to Florida, and we thought most of the spring blooms had come in Georgia before we left.  Then on our way home, we started seeing the Wisteria.  When you see it down here draping over whole properties, it is possible to see where it might be an invasive weed.  However, it smells heavenly, and is so beautiful, that it just becomes one of the things we associate with the South.
 There are a couple of other plants that will always scream "Georgia" to me:
 Azaleas
Dogwood
Clover along the roadways
 And Pecan trees.  They are the last to leaf out and are just now beginning to get their new leaves.
