Dogwood Arts Trail Tour

I've meant for some time to take you on tour of a Dogwood Trail that is part of Knoxville's annual Dogwood Arts Festival in April. The trail we toured this year is near the grandgals so I picked them & Firstborn up and off we went to see all the pretty dogwoods and all kinds of flower blooms on the trail.
Pink dogwoods are my favorite....
And I love old neighborhoods where they have sidewalks, so cool.
Tulips perfectly placed.
This is a wisteria vine covering/smothering a tree, lol.
Tulips in wonderland...
Some of the properties on the trail have a wonderfully wild aura.
What's prettier than a beautiful stone house? One with azaleas!
The different style of the homes are interesting, too.
This tree with yet a different wisteria vine must be about 80 feet tall.
Here's a look at the base of the tree & the vine growing together.
It was a beautiful day to tour, clear blue skies...
There's a Japanese-style garden on the trail, too.
The entrance...
An arched walkway leading to the pagoda...
Isn't this building gorgeous,.
The pagoda...
A rock wall surrounds the garden.
Side view of the walkway...
A view of the garden from the pagoda...and the last picture I took on the trail.
Firstborn directed us to another neighborhood to see this captivating stretch of trees arching over the road. That concludes my tour...hope you enjoyed it.
Have a great week, Y'all!
Linking up with Good Fences

  5. I exclaimed out loud as the photos opened up. It so makes me homesick. Pink dogwoods! And look at the height of those, white and pink! They are so rare here and so small when you do see them. And even tulips--they don't grow here, doesn't get cold enough in winter for the bulbs to bloom but once. And a stone house! Ohmygoodness, thank you for a breath of home.

  7. I really enjoyed this tour. I love dogwoods and your photos are beautiful. The neighbourhood with sidewalks and trees reminds me of a time when I lived in a small town like that (many years ago).
    Thanks for taking me along.
