Today was absolutely beautiful in Charlotte, NC....we are beginning to experience the first signs of spring. The sky was a gorgeous blue and the temperature was 82 degrees.
I asked my 87 year old mother if she would enjoy taking a ride to see if we could see any spring blossoms. We saw many Bradford pear trees that are full of buds and will be in full bloom soon if the weather stays like this. As we got closer to the city the more buds and blossoms we saw. Many people plant pansies so they were in full bloom with lots of color. We even saw some early daffodils in bloom...love that smell.
As we drove through Dilworth and Myers Park I actually stopped to take a few pictures.
This was a beautiful flowering tree. The colors were spectacular!
This was a lovely Camellia in full bloom and covering this fence. My mother and I actually went shopping afterwards and purchased three beautiful Camellia bushes. I want them to hang over our fence. So beautiful.
I am definitely ready for spring.
