The Beauty of Buckeyes!

102_0205 Glorious Buckeyes are in bloom!  These crazy trees only grow about four months of the year.  Such stunning green they give in the early spring!  Next the spires begin to grow and fill until….

102_0211 They blossom in this incredible show of beauty for a few short weeks.  The lower in altitude the earlier the show so we get to enjoy them longer as we travel up and down the mountain. 


102_0210 The white blobs are everywhere on the hillsides…This doesn’t last long until the leaves dry up and turn a rusty brown and the tree is dormant till next spring!  Then we see blobs of dead looking rusty colored trees on the hillsides! LOL
