Subject: RE: Is there a real Sourwood Mtn & where?
If sanyone is ever in the Southeastern USA, try to locate some honey made from the sourwood tree. "Sourwood Honey" is considered some of the best here in Tennessee. Beekeepers will pull the honey from the hives before and after the sourwood run, to assure that the honey that the bees set is all from the flowers of the sourwood tree. I've heard three states claim that their Sourwood Mountain is the one referred to in the song (NC, TN, VA.) Wilco in Tennessee USA
