First Outing in the Little British Car

9 Comments

We got the TVR out on Saturday for a drive with friends.  It is one of our favorite things to do, springtime in the mountains just has to be experienced.  We really enjoy these drives, and we get to see some of our wonderful blooming trees.  So, here we are at the parking lot, gathering together in preparation for the drive.  The blue TVR in the middle is ours.

On the road, lots of little vintage cars.  We had 14 in the queue, here passing by one of the pear trees in bloom.

Golden forsythia was in full bloom in many places along the route.

By far, though, my favorite is the weeping cherry. Lovely pink blooms cascade down on long fronds like a weeping willow.

We ended our drive at the local Jaguar dealer, who fed us a wonderful lunch of burgers, hot dogs and all the fixin’s, along with some decadent chocolate cake.

Yesterday, I got a few extra pics of these beautiful trees to show. These weeping cherries are about 100 ft tall.

They are all over, and all in bloom right now. The bloom color runs from pinkish white to a deep pink.

These are up the road a bit, upright pink flower covered trees.

Close up of a bloom. They look a lot like peach blooms, I am not totally sure what they are.

Here’s another weeping cherry, with some golden forsythias.

In front of my office are these cute little daffodils.

And behind the house, the periwinkles cover the mountain.

The redbud is getting ready to bloom too, but that is enough for now. This time in the mountains is wonderful, with something new blooming just about every week for the next couple of months. Happy Spring!!
