Flowers at the Masters

According to Golf.com, “all roads lead to Augusta.” At this time of year, we whole-heartily concur.  Without an inkling of how you are getting there, unknowing of your route, there’s one thing for certain:  the drive will. be. absolutely. captivating.

Better, so will the course.

Finer than the pimento cheese sandwiches, the blossoms and blooms are one grand show.

Did you know that every hole at Augusta National Golf Club are named after flowering and/or aromatic trees or shrubs. LOVE THIS!

Here they are:

  •  No. 1 – Tea Olive
  • No. 2 – Pink Dogwood
  • No. 3 – Flowering Peach
  • No. 4 – Flowering Crab Apple
  • No. 5 – Magnolia
  • No. 6 – Juniper
  • No. 7 – Pampas
  • No. 8 – Yellow Jasmine
  • No. 9 – Carolina Cherry
  • No. 10 – Camellia
  • No. 11 – White Dogwood
  • No. 12 – Golden Bell
  • No. 13 – Azalea
  • No. 14 – Chinese Fir
  • No. 15 – Firethorn
  • No. 16 – Redbud
  • No. 17 – Nandina
  • No. 18 – Holly

Before becoming a golf course the property was a 365-acre plant nursery.  It’s no surprise that as we cheer on Bubba Watson with a short round of soft golf clapping hands, we can’t help but applaud the fresh floral spray that the Masters Tournament is famous.

  1. I had strep six many years ago, rushed towards the Med Clinic (not insured)
    and obtained the penicillin. Luckily, it was inexpensive. It absolutely was gone in 12 hours.
    Past night, I am certain that it occurred all over again,
    but the symptoms have lessened (no a lot more fever), and i see no white spots.
    it is even now sore to swallow, but not painfully so.
    I believe which i might wait around till Monday, ahead of shelling out the money for a health care provider and medication.
    (FYI i lately experienced a nasty cold when traveling to the holidays it lasted over
    three weeks, but two months have passed with excellent wellness.
