To learn more about our Azalea & Spring Flower Trail

How it all began

While oil booms gave Tyler an economic head start in the 1930’s,
azalea and rose blooms gave the city its beauty. Azaleas were introduced
to Tyler in 1929 by Maurice Shamburger, one of the city’s early
nurserymen. Pleased with results of a test garden of azaleas, Shamburger
shipped the colorful plants here by the boxcar loads from Georgia.

After completing his garden in 1929, Shamburger discussed the
beautification potential of azaleas with Mrs. Sara Butler of the Tyler
Courier Times Telegraph. Mrs. Butler not only encouraged Shamburger to
promote azalea plantings in the city, but planted a number of bushes at
her own home on Charnwood St.
That home site, along with several other gardens on Lindsey Lane,
soon became springtime showplaces with their colorful azalea blooms, and
Tylerites began buying the plants by the thousands. Some of the thick,
towering azaleas at older homes on the Trail date back to the ‘30’s and
‘40’s.
By 1960, the blooming azaleas were attracting much attention, and
that year the Chamber of Commerce

established a marked route. The first
Trail featured about 60 homes on a five-mile route.
The Trail was an instant success. Within two years it had expanded to
75 homes and was attracting 15,000 visitors. By 1964, 25,000 people a
year were coming to see the azaleas. In 1986, it expanded to two miles
and as of 2004; the Azalea Trail stretches eight miles and attracts over
100,000 visitors to Tyler.
The homeowners make the Trail the success it is. They regularly
increase their azalea plantings and spend countless hours making sure
their yards are spotless for the annual visitors.
The Trail has been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines,
including Southern Living and Texas Highways, drawing visitors from all
over America

threeEP series, beginning with Volume 1, an elegant and soaring
collection of songs about love and loss. Volume 2 and Volume 3 will be
released this summer and fall, each with its own sound and style.

“The thing that I like about King Kong, and what it says about me as an
artist is, it sounds like me, for whatever that’s worth,” says
Schneider. “My music isn’t ever really just one thing. It’s quirky. One
minute it seems like it’s a joke and the next it’s deadly serious, and
that’s in the
same song. I’m not an easy person to understand or figure out, but and I
hope I’m right, it keeps things interesting in the long run.” Bob

Peter
Gibbons works at Initech and hates his job. He also hates his abusive
and annoying Division VP Bill Lumbergh and now the company has just
hired consultants to help make cuts to downsize the company.

Peter’s best friends are software engineers Michael Bolton and Samir
Nagheenanajar, they also hate Initech. Peter’s girlfriend is cheating on
him, but she convinces Peter to visit a hypnotherapist to get some
inspiration to be more ambitious. Peter tells the doctor how miserable
his life is and goes under hypnosis. The hypnosis helps Peter – but not
quite in the way he expected.

Peter no longer cares about his job, his cheating girlfriend or ripping off the company by  embezzling funds.

And then there is Milton and his stapler…….

APRIL 1-5 2015

This popular flea market is open one
weekend a month, attracts upwards of 100,000 shoppers, and provides
spaces for 6,000 vendors located on hundreds of acres.

It has become known by shoppers from all across Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma as THE
place to buy home decor, furnishings, antiques, clothing, crafts,
jewelry, gifts, and collectibles. And it is a favorite of vendors,
dealers, craftsmen and artists alike as the perfect venue to market
their wares LETS NOT FORGET TO SAY

 

 Well I am not finding any real events in the area the weekend after Easter!!  My suggestion for that weekend is to book a room at the Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast and Extended Stay Suites. My bet is the spring flowers will be spectacular at that time-and no crowds!! The weather will be
perfect for time for MUCH relaxation at the Inn- The fires will be burning nightly and we will have one of our legendary breakfasts each morning. Come see us soon!!

  Until next time
