Flash of Color

Early springtime in the Smokies is a duality.  While the hardwood and evergreen trees that pepper the mountainsides have not yet sprouted their first leaves, there are flowering trees everywhere.  The trees display the most amazing palette of colors: pinks, reds, whites, and yellows.  They stand out against the still-beige countryside, and provide a glimpse of the vibrance yet to come in the year, of copiously blooming rhododendrons and dogwoods, and a vivid spectrum of greens.
