For three years straight, its blooms were killed by late frosts. When it does bloom, my backyard gets a facelift.

Sun Studio, Memphis

Speaking of Sun Studio, here is how I saw it in 1995. A lot of Rock-and-Roll history here.
A big THANKS to the late Sam Phillips; We owe you, Mr. Phillips.

Blues City General Store

Memphis is the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock-and-Roll. Let's see...Jerry Lee Lewis, Johny Cash, Roy Orbison, B.B. King, Carl Perkins, Rufus Thomas among others...and of course...Elvis Presley. They all recorded their work at Sun Studio (originally, Memphis Recording Service) on Union Avenue.
This watercolor shows yet another hint-to be found on Beale Street. It was painted for the WKNO Art and Antiques Auction to take place in early November.
