Ugly Road Beautiful Trees

One of my favorite things about spring is the newly flowering trees and bushes. It's so nice to see after a long, dreary winter of grey skies and leafless trees. One place I especially love is this road by my house:

This is about a mile stretch of road that is lined with beautiful flowering crab apple trees.

Its such a pretty sight. Of course, the road is ugly and in sorry state, but the trees sure look pretty!

This is my clematis that I planted last year. Two weeks ago it was just a few inches above the ground, now it's about 15 inches tall! It grows a inch a day I think! It's going to be HUGE this year and I can't wait for it to start flowering.

Ahh..Spring. Gotta love it!

Take it all in! Spring is gorgeous!

Now, we'll be looking for pics of those clematis flowers later on this year! LOL.

Sally said...

Oh yes, the trees are awesome! Wow, that clematis is really getting her groove on now!! :)

I see you changed your header too! Looks great. Hope you're enjoying the weekend. ((hugs))

I love those trees! I don't mind the road either. They have character that way! My clematis has already bloomed. So early this year.

Brenda said...

Oh Wow! It must be amazing to see a sight like that as you drive along. Beautiful! Happy Spring!

I love this time of year when the spring bulbs and trees are blooming--so pretty and smell great.

I also have a lot of our State Flower--the beautiful, yellow Dandelion.

I've been gone a couple of days, so I'm a little late getting here.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Mother's Day. ((((hugs))))

Many of our roads are ugly too, but your skies are lovely indeed. I enjoyed all the signs of spring you shared ;--)
