Springtime In Helen


We took a short trip over in the mountains to Helen, Ga.!
Come along with me!!!!
 I NEED this birdhouse!

Of course I LOVED this flag!
 

There are not words to tell you how beautiful this tree was.
I don't have a clue what it is so if you know, please tell me!
*************
Since I posted this, my friend Diane S. told me that she thinks this
is a Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree!
"Sweet Hunter" doesn't know it yet,
but this is on my list of
WANTS!
 

This is a close up view of the blooms on that tree!
Love the river!
 

Azaleas were gorgeous!
He looks fake but he is real!
 

Love this birdhouse too!
 
They were remodeling this place and just throwing junk all over these flowers!
This horses name is Shadrak!
They call him Shack and he gives kisses!
 
I hope you enjoyed this little trip as much as I did!
Thanks for visiting!

Love the visit Val. That flag looked so real. It's been years since I was in Helen last. Always loved the little town. A getaway always does one good. Glad you had a good trip.

What a fun place! We were there not too long ago and had the best time. We went to Goats on the Roof there. Have you ever been? It's the neatest place! We hope to visit back up that way very soon. Have a great Sunday!

Ahh spring! Flowers are so beautiful and add such colour to everything. Looks like you had a fantastic trip over the mountains. Keep posting about spring for those up here in the frozen north! :) Our turn is coming, I'm think ...
