It was rather remarkable to us, that the hardwood trees that cover this part of Virginia stood bare during early Spring, as if they were dead and would never leaf out again, while flowers and smaller trees, like the Dogwood and others were showing a barrage of blossoms and new growth. But, then all of a sudden as April turned to May, the barren branches of all this forest of hardwoods that surround each village and town boomed forth their greenery! What looked totally lifeless one day, or so it seemed to us desert dwellers, appeared to leaf out overnight. It really is wonderful to see!
