Here in Alabama, Saturday was a great day for riding! Harley and I wanted to make the best of it, so we decided to go to Whataburger for lunch... in Clanton! It was the kind'a ride that took you 80 miles to get there, even though it was only 50 miles away. We took a leisurely cruise up our favorite little highways and byways and observed all the Spring blossoms starting to dapple our beautiful country landscape.
These Tulip trees are one of my favorite Spring flowers. I'm not sure if they're officially called Tulip trees, but that's what I call them. When they start to bloom, I know the dreary brownness of winter will soon be gone.
In this northern area of Autauga County, you'll see acres and acres of these lovely peach trees lining the roads, sometimes on both sides. These gorgeous blossoms create an image of a brilliant pink blanket laying across the landscape and it looks absolutely beautiful.
Even these Bradford Pears dressed up the dormant tree line with their contrasting blooms of white.
During one of our little stretch breaks, I couldn't help but notice these delicate tiny little purple blooms that made the dirty ground even look pretty.
We enjoyed a nice ride, ate a good 'ol burger, and saw some pretty spring scenery all while under a lovely blue sky and cruising through the welcome warm spring air. It can't get much better than this! Hope your weekend ride was as good as mine was.
Have a great week everybody!
