Blooming azaleas in Tyler and dogwood trees in Palestine and the smell of bbq on the square in downtown Tyler signify spring has arrived in East Texas! With everyone getting out of the house and enjoying the spring weather, there are plenty of activities and festivals to keep us busy just about nearly every weekend...
There are so many things to do in East Texas this weekend, but you'll want to be careful though because your outdoor activities could be ruined because of rain Saturday afternoon and evening and into Sunday. The threat is there so be prepared if you take part in any of these East Texas activities this weekend.
With the arrival of spring last week, now's the time to get out of the house and take in many outdoor (and indoor) activities in East Texas. This weekend is no exception, you can get out and see blooming trees and flowers, take in a concert and even be a part of a charity event and more!
It's a rather quiet start to Tyler's Azalea & Spring Flower Trails this year thanks to winter temperatures that have hung around a lot later than normal. The blooms are just now starting to bud, but haven't opened up to display their beauty just yet. However, that doesn't stop the festival and the celebrating one of Tyler's natural beauties though.
Spring officially begins tomorrow and Friday ushers the start of the Azalea and Spring Flower Trails. Kick starting the trails, is the Rose City Artisans and Flower Market open at 10 a.m. Friday morning on the Grounds of the Goodman-LeGrand Museum in Tyler.
The signs of spring are all around us, trees are starting to bud, some grass is turning green, daffodils are popping up and the azalea blooms are starting to appear on the evergreen bush and that means the Azalea & Spring Flower Trail in Tyler will soon be opening.
I can look out my kitchen window and see thousands of buds that are on the verge of bursting with color - pink, dark red and white. I'm talking about azaleas. Tyler and all of East Texas have tons of these blooming bushes that display beautiful little flowers each year...
