A bit of spring on the first day of spring

One of the loveliest places to be in the spring is the Appalachians in Kentucky. This video is the North Carolina version, but just as stunning. My favorite are the Redbud trees that add clouds of purplish pink in the midst of light green and bark. The hammer dulcimer Celtic tune accompaniment is perfect for the setting.

This read about a hike on Parson’s Mountain in the Great Smoky Mountains in Abbeville, South Carolina describes several of the plants featured in the video.
