Festival of the Trees - March 2011

Festival of the Trees

Spring flowers are in the trees right now in North Carolina.  One of the most beautiful is the Red Maple.  We found this one on top of the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Pisgah Inn.

I found this Red Maple and Red Bud  at the Asheville Botanical Gardens today.

This Serviceberry Tree and Dogwood were found at the North Asheville Library today.

Flowering Dogwood
These are all native Southern Appalachian trees that live near or in Asheville, North Carolina.  What a beautiful March we are having.  Welcome Spring once again.



Thank you, Robert Priddy, for the Red Maple flower photos!!!
