Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Urban Hike reveals Cherry Blossoms and Pansies

It always feels as if Spring has arrived when the Cherry Blossoms Bloom.  I spotted them from Hot Springs Mountain a couple of days ago and I noticed the Japanese Cherry Trees were covered in red buds.  Rain, hail and wind had me worried all the delicate flowers would be knocked down… I set out today to see if any blossoms has survived.

A fun way to experience spring awakening if you don’t live near any trails is to take an urban hike.  You probably spot many flowering Trees and gardens when you are running errands or driving to work.  Plan a hike in your neighborhood, town etc. and follow the spring color.   It is amazing what you will discover in planters, gardens and poking out of sidewalks.  Nature finds a way to show her beauty even if at first glance all you see are buildings and concrete.

Love To ALL!
