Colors of Spring in Charlottesville
From Redbud writer, Jane Belisle.
What is it about the eye-popping colors of Spring here in Charlottesville that just make me smile?
The reds next to the pinks surrounding the purples and the whites. I simply love this time of year here in Charlottesville.
Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Midwest and we had such a short spring season. Maybe it’s because I didn’t really know there could be this many flowering bushes and shrubs in one place at one time. Maybe it’s just because I love sunshine and color.
It is amazing to me what a yard can look like with just a few well-placed beautiful flowering plants. Every time I take a walk in my neighborhood, it makes me fall in love…again and again…with this beautiful City we live in.
