Native pecans in early spring

"In every man's heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty."
  ~Christopher Morley, 20th century poet and author
    As spring growth emerges from our native pecan trees, the grove is carpeted by the pale flowers of blue phlox, Phlox divaricata. In every season of the year, nothing calms the spirit like being immersed in a native pecan grove.
