Not the least of the pleasure of our weekend trip was the drive too and from Columbia. It feels like all of South Carolina is bursting into spring bloom.
All of the roads are lined with red clover and yellow buttercup. The unplowed farmlands are a mass of pink and blue wildflowers. Dogwood and wild azaleas are everywhere in the woods. Even the pine trees’ bark is colorful… Yes it really does have a pinkish - purplish maroon tint which is even more striking against the bright yellow green of new spring growth.
