Wow—that is all I could manage when I drove up to this stunning New Dawn rose in full bloom at Rusticks home store here in Cashiers. This has been a beautiful Spring in Atlanta and in Cashiers because of all of the rain and the cooler temps, but all of that changed today. I just drove up from 99 degrees in Atlanta to 69 degrees here in Cashiers. Yes, it is the perfect time to come to the mountains. Peek through the New Dawn rose and the rustic locus and laurel arch and see Cashiers Lake in the distance. Come on up and cool off in the mountains!
