Tulip, other tress blooming around state Capitol
Spring in Tennessee is more beautiful than any place I've lived around the nation.
Around the state Capitol building, the tulip trees are blooming with their small off-red and white bulb flowers. I love the look but hate the smell. The blooms to me smell like stale beer.
White flowers are appearing on other trees. Spring has come amid a growing economic winter in Tennessee and the nation.
Let us then appreciate the moment of the changing of the natural seasons and thank our merciful Lord even if the economic one continues to grow colder and meaner.
