We’re not quite into April yet, but Spring has officially sprung here in Asheville. The  landscape is punctuated with the blooms of cheerful daffodils and the brilliant yellow sprays of forsythia. Creeping phlox in vibrant shades of purple and pink cascade down the hillsides and redbuds dapple the forests. And this is just the beginning of the show. Dogwood flowers with their delicate blooms in pink and white aren’t far behind. Each year these trees and perennials have their 15 minutes of fame and then fade quietly into the background until their next stunning performance. Coming upon the heels of winter with most trees still bereft of leaves, I find the riot of color extra intense and oh so welcome. Some of our friends at Etsy also have spring blooms top of mind.

    Asheville IS beautiful in the Spring. Spent many a weekend in Mars Hill. I do miss the mountains whilst living down here in the middle and flat part of the state!

    Terrific work! This is the type of info that should be shared around the internet. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and visit my site . Thanks =)
