The catawba rhododendron are starting to come to life. I love seeing these delicate buds bloom and paint the lodge area with beautiful pinks. The cone flowers are just around the corner. The temperatures have been nice. The high yesterday was 59º with a low of 47º. The sun is currently shining and the wind is blowing. You can pretty much count on afternoon showers through the month of June. The crew enjoyed the first firework display of the season. Dollywood has started its nightly show at 9:30. We hung out and watched the tiny pops of color. It is always fun to have a different perspective on something that seems so big when you are on the ground looking up. It is also strange to watch it and then hear the boom a few minutes later. They don't last long, five to ten minutes at the max. I believe the display goes through August.
