These are really quite beautiful.  The captions came with the photos.

Each spring, a peaceful street, in the German city of Bonn , 
transforms into an enchanting cherry blossom tunnel.

The picture was taken on the way up to Smuggler’s Notch, a Vermont state park.

Gingko biloba is a highly venerated tree in Japanese culture. Six ginkgo trees survived the Hiroshima bombing, continuing to grow despite facing so many challenges, and are still alive today. Therefore, the Japanese regard the gingko as “the bearer of hope”.

Tucked away in the county of Antrim, northern Ireland, these beautiful beech trees 
are thought to be around 300 years old.

The Sagano Bamboo Forest in Japan is located in Arashiyama, a nationally-designated historic site.

This spectacular jacaranda tree tunnel is located either in Johannesburg or Pretoria, South Africa

The Ashikaga Flower Park, Japan, is one of the best places to admire different varieties of wisteria, including double-petaled wisteria, giant wisteria and yellow, white, light pink or purple variants of wisteria.


At intersections look each way
A harp sounds nice
but it's hard to play

Both hands on the wheel
eyes on the road
That's the skillful driver's code
Burma Shave

The one who drives
when he's been drinking
Depends on you to do his thinking
Burma Shave

Car in ditch
Driver in tree
The moon was full
and so was he.
Burma Shave

Passing school zone
Take it slow
Let our little
Shavers grow
Burma Shave

Don’t stick your elbow
out so far
It may go home
in another car.

  1. That's The Dark Hedges! I've never found them.

  2. I would love to travel each of these roads!

  3. Just beautiful! I would love to see these in person. I especially like the photo with the different wisteria blossoms - just breath-taking!
