Mercer County in Spring

Mississippi garden writer and author Felder Rushing, visited Mercer in 2002 researching information for his book, Tough Plants for Northern Gardens. The above photograph shows the lush spring growth of a Japanese quince with red flowers and a yellow forsythia, both shrubs grow well in Mercer County. The historic Mercer County Courthouse is in the background.
