Themes Near Strasburg, VA

I'm posting for three memes here. All these pictures fit into the Good. Random and Fun theme so I'll start with The Good, and that's spring!
flowering trees

The blossoming trees of spring are putting on a wonderful show. Spring arrived a little late and it seems like everything is blooming at once. It's not great for pollen allergies but it's a real treat for the eyes!

The first image also qualifies for Nature Footstep's newest theme, Trees and Bushes.

The Random: The second image has trees in it too, but I'm using it for The Barn Collective. It also fits nicely into a recurring theme of this blog, Shenandoah Valley scenes. The road shown here runs through Fishers Hill, a charming village near Strasburg.

squirrelFun! Squirrels are fun to watch! They are determined little critters and can be very acrobatic when getting food. This feeder holds suet intended for birds.

A reader commented that I don't post enough squirrel pictures so I hope he sees these! (See all my squirrel posts... or as many as you feel like paging through.)
