Last weekend I had a post titled, "Roadside Beauty." I was of course joking about the Kudzu we see along the roadside in the southeastern United States. Even though invasive, I do find it a work of art in places and even see the beauty from within. I can say this as there is not any Kudzu growing in my Georgia Garden. Now lets move onto some real roadside beauties that I spotted while in Tennessee. The pictures above was snapped just up the street from where my parents live. It is along Dunbar Cave Road and I could not help but stare at it as each time I passed this spot. All greenery but so well placed don't you think?
Leaving Dunbar Cave road and intersecting with Wilma Rudolph Blvd, I found another spot of beauty. Different groups of folks from throughout Clarksville maintain some of the mediums at the intersections. I find this a wonderful program to help beautify a city.
This spot was in front of a bank teller machine. I was by this spot often and enjoyed this roadside beauty as well.
And right in the middle of the road, which is normally filled with asphalt, I spotted this beautiful little planter!
Some of you may recognize this place as Tina has posted on it once before when she first started this blog. This beautiful spot can be seen in front of the Toyota Dealership on Wilma Rudolph Blvd soon after you cross the Red River Bridge.
The beauty along this roadside is bursting with colors of Red and White. Do you notice that is the business colors used in Advertising? Thought sure went into that color scheme. This picture was not taken at the same spot as the pic above even though they look similar. They have several areas along the front of the car lot with the same pattern.
I was using the trusty Zoom lens from across the street to capture these pictures. My mother and I were not sure if the white vine is Clematis or Mandevilla but what ever it is, it is beautiful for sure!
And look, Palm Trees in Clarksville, Tennessee! I have heard a rumor of the price of each of these trees and they ain't cheap folks! Luckily for the landscaper, they made it through their first winter without dying. I am not sure but I think they have someone hired just to maintain these gardens on a daily basis as I saw him each time I drove by this spot. Maybe he washes the cars when not watering the flowers with his trusty hose. He should be proud with REAL ROADSIDE BEAUTY, In the Garden...
