When we moved to Charlottesville 6 years ago we did not know how beautiful the spring is here. Spring also starts earlier than it does up north where we came from so it is a delight in late March to see life coming back to the landscape. Spring is now our favorite season of the year here at Foxfield Inn.
The winters here are dull color-wise (with the exception of a few snow storms) and every March the colors start popping out. April is the prettiest month with the purple redbuds, the pink dogwoods and white dogwoods in bloom. There are pale pink weeping cherry trees blossoming and white pussy willows budding out. The light green abounds with the opening of fresh leaves on the trees and bushes.
And then there are the multitude of colors from the early flowers – yellow daffodils, blue hyacinths, orange lilies and red tulips.
Our goldfish awaken from their winter’s rest during this time as well and their orange, white and striped colors gleam in the sunshine. We are awash in color.
As we sit here today thinking about how lucky we are to have the gorgeous spring colors in April we know they will continue into May when the azaleas and rhododendrons come alive with their splendid pinks, reds and whites.
Spring is a beautiful season! Come visit before it’s gone.
