Designer Carol Ballard wrote: “Spring has finally arrived and we’re greening up all over.  One of my favorite things is when the leaves return to the trees and driving down one of the shade covered two lanes.  It’s probably one of the most beautiful sites, and we’re so lucky to have so many wonderful roads to choose from!
Thank you Carol for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge!
