Here's what our Athens house looked like last Friday, before the freeze killed all the blooms.
below: I've fallen in love with the Cherokee rose bush. It's gorgeous.
below: can kind of see 3 of the dogwoods...they are very impressive in person. There's a fourth one (huge) not visible in this photo. The bank of azaleas across the front all got burned by the freeze.
Now that we have a city house, we have to do onerous things like mow. Lawn's still patchy from winter, but weeds were getting high.
below: approach to front door.
below: wonderful fragrance...
