As you may have gathered Biasini insisted on “speaking”about his trip home . He informed me I could put up a post on the “blob” about my trip later!
As said in my previous post about our trip home we now do it over four days. When we did it in three days we had to be on the road by 7 and pressing on till dark. This time we would get up have some breakfast and then drive with no pressure and arrive at the place we would stay overnight by 5:30 at the latest.
Our first night we stayed in Jacksonville which is in North Florida. The next day we set off and were still enjoying much greenery. A we got father north we saw the white blooms of the dogwood. Also there was a very attractive purple blooming shrub. I don’t know what it is and if you do please let me know in the comments below. Here is a photo.
Our second night we were in Statesville. We headed north to West Virginia on day 3 and the Appalachian mountains. Here we went through a long tunnel the had been cut through the mountian! Here is a video.And yes there is light at the end of the tunnel!
Third night we were in Morgantown not too far from Pittsburgh. Now noticed the roads were not flanked by flowering trees and the branches had small buds but no leaves.
Day four we headed to Buffalo NY and the Canadian border. The customs official seemed surprised we had been away for 3.5 months and had not bought anything much apart from a small board game for our Grandson. I didn’t like to tell him that all my money is spent on my horse!! He waved us through and then I felt we had gone back in time to a more winter like scene.My travel mascot George was not too sure about it!
However when we got to our home a few hours later there were some signs of spring.
This past week we have had summer weather. Well above average temperatures! But that is all about to change and the forecast for Tuesday morning mentions snow showers!!!Yup. So there you have it.
I would like to submit the daffodils and tulip for Cees Flower of the Day challenge. and also for Dawn’s Festival of Spring 2023
I’d love to hear from you!
