Saturday drive

It has been just too lovely a day not to go for a drive.

Temperatures are record-tying mid-80's and the trees are just gorgeous.

This beautiful cranberry-fuschia tree is along Longfellow Street in Vandergrift. One of the very best things Vandergrift has ever done is to plant flowering trees along the streets. The Magnolias bloomed early and are just about petal-free. But now some fruit trees are blooming. Our apple tree is filled as is our young cherry tree. The peach tree shown last year with a sock, hasn't started to bloom yet.

The pastoral scene is along Melwood Road.

Sigh All that green and beauty. Yes a nice idea trees to please the eyes and flowers to make the air smell grand.
