Here is another one of my most favorite memories. We moved to VA when I was 10 and one memory that I will never forget is my first springtime there. I literally lost my breath when I saw the woods. It was a bright array of color. The white Dogwood trees and the colorful wild rhododendron bushes everywhere. It truly is the most beautiful place for natural beauty! In WA, we have to go to a store and buy Rhodies and dogwood trees. This one brings tears to my eyes.

Dave Allen replied:

Thanks Molly, I am so glad that the images can bring back good memories for you!
