Spring View of Mt. Mitchell
The red bud trees in this view of Mt. Mitchell caught my eye as my husband and I journeyed home from Asheville last Spring. The North Carolina mountains are much higher and more rugged than the Virginia mountains; there are more spruce than in Virginia and the evergreen trees are a different variety. I need to be more educated on the types of trees but I have borrowed a book on the wildflowers and when they bloom; so I have some research to keep me busy for a while. I am excited to look for new signs of life this Spring!
