April 1st is when it really opens up around here. Tulips, daffodils, azaleas, and, of course, dogwoods — which bring on one of the loveliest festivals in the South: the Dogwood Arts Festival. It’s definitely not a one-day affair. Knoxville, Tennessee, springs to life as blooms come out in full force. From the painted pink Dogwood Trails to the frivolity on Market Square to the openings of artist studios, music venues, and gardens, Dogwood Arts Festival is somethin’ to see each and every April.
For this year’s festival, we’ll be dedicating most, if not all, of our posts on what’s up with Dogwood Arts 2015. By no means can we see it all or do it all. But we’ll have fun trying.
Please join us as we show you some of what we enjoy — trails, gardens, art in public places, Chalk Walk, Rhythm ‘n Blooms, and more. Might even throw in a few pics of dogwood blossoms just so you’ll see why Knoxville is the prettiest place in the South!
And because so many of our readers live in other states and other countries, we’re including links below so you can check out what’s happening in and around our beautiful city. (Like our favorite Dogwood Bloom Watch 2015 — daily photos of the opening of a dogwood bloom!)
Lovin’ the good life in Knoxville,
Rusha and Bert Sams
