Crabapple Allee at Skylands

IMG 8875

I've been trying to catch the crabs in bloom. Wednesday I went over but I wasn't happy with my photos. So, yesterday morning I went back again, only a little bit earlier to avoid too many people. And, wouldn't you know it, the allee was being mowed! I bided my time with taking photos of other things until he was done. They aren't quite all  in full bloom yet, but almost.

The freshly mown grass gave off a wonderful odor. The grass only smells this way in spring and in fall. Sweet, like clover. And also like freshly cut scallions! We have so many wild onions all over the place -- in our own yard as well. I didn't have long to wait and Mr. Mower moved on out of my way.

This photo was taken about half-way down the allee, looking toward the statues of the the Four Continents. There are 156 "Pink Spires" in total.

 The statue of Asia looks back the opposite direction towards the lodge. It's her best side since her face is mostly worn away. Do you remember her?

The color of newly sprung green was everywhere. It doesn't last long but it's intoxicating while it's here.

Ahhh, Spring!!
