Every April, Knoxville has a Dogwood Arts Festival, which involves lots of art displays and fairs, a music festival called Rhythm and Blooms, and specially designated dogwood trails throughout the city. We didn't participate in much, thanks to a combination of Jamie keeping us at home in the evening and April being Thomas's last month of class (and consequently a very busy one), but we did walk a couple of the dogwood trails. These pictures don't really do them justice--they were so pretty and in really nice neighborhoods, so we were also oohing and aahing over the houses. I love spring when everything is in bloom like this!

Knoxville seems to have a thing for festivals. Stay tuned for next month, when we will be celebrating the Biscuit Festival. That's right, biscuits.
