Georgia responses to Morocco
Hi. My name is Steven. I am nine-years-old and am
telling you about plants in Georgia. I hope you enjoy these awesome
pictures! In Georgia, there are lots of things growing in
our backyards and in our neighborhoods. One big thing is our state tree
is the Live Oak. Here is a photo:Another
thing is the beautiful azalea, our state wildflower. They bloom in dark
pink, light pink, white and yellow. They bloom in the spring and they
grow in lots of places. Here is a close up of azalea blooms: This is a picture of azaleas WITH a Live Oak!Oh,
did you know about the Cherokee Rose? It can bloom yellow and white.
It is our state flower. I'd like to show you a picture: This
will crack you up! Did you have any idea what kudzu can cover? Kudzu
grows all over Georgia and can be an annoyance. Here is a little poem
The Amazing Story of Kudzu
Love It, Or Hate It... It Grows On You!
||In Georgia, the legend says
That you must close your windows
At night to keep it out of the house.
The glass is tinged with green, even so...
From the poem, "Kudzu,"
by James Dickey
There are millions of acres of kudzu
in our state. Here is a photo. Look closely and you will see that there
is a little house in there....completely covered!
Here is the next to last plant. It is another Giant! It is
the Pine Tree. I have one of these in my backyard and boy is it
large! Lots of pine needles come off it, along with some pine cones. In my backyard, there is something growing called Lilirope. It is a green plant that's pretty much like normal grass except
for the fact it's very long and does not need quite so much water.
Sometimes it blooms with light purple flowers just like you see in the
