    pictured is the monroe county confederate civil war memorial. this memorial has a bronze statue of a solder on a marble pedestal which is very unusual. this is one of the most unique confederate memorials i have seen in the south.

    In the first two weeks of March, the annual Forsythia Festival is held in Forsyth, GA.

    For the non-gardeners, forsythia is a bush with bundles of bright yellow buds that sprout every spring before turning green (and having to be pruned.... lousy job).

    The home city for this festival is obviously Forsyth, GA. They have street vendors, and local song-and-dance acts, and tours around the town buildings where hundreds of the bushes are presented for picture taking.

    It is the highlight event of the season in this part of Georgia.

    So if you are this way in early spring, plan to spend a day here, taking pictures, munching hamburgers or ribs and pawing through all the trinkets they have for sale.

    Also 17 sex offenders are regisitered for the Forsyth, GA area. Most of those are registered for offenses with a minor.
    So if you have chidren with you on vacaton in this area, then you might want to check out the website below to see if any of the facts pertain to where you will be staying.

    While you are in the Forsyth area, remember to lock your car doors and use the chain-latch on your hotel room for security. Be aware of where you are and who is watching you.
